Barnes on Tuesday had reportedly called Los Rios Police Department Dispatch and made several non-threatening, unsubstantiated claims. Police were tipped off by a custodian who spotted someone in a campus restroom after hours. As a result, Barnes was arrested and booked into the county jail Tuesday. She was then released early Wednesday morning, according to a statement from the district.READ MORE: Boosted Californians Getting COVID At Twice The Rate Of Those Vaccinated But Not Boosted
The restraining order stems from an incident in which Barnes allegedly made a “racist and vile threat” against Dixon, the District says. Following that incident, the Sacramento Superior Court granted the Los Rios Community College District a temporary restraining order against Barnes.MORE NEWS: Applications Now Open For $10K Grants For Sacramento Artists
