This afternoon the local police called the plant. A family member said one of our contractors was headed to the plant for his shift, armed and suicidal. Several of us get to the gatehouse where the police were on the line, and among other things find this guy just signed in 10 minutes ago. So we scramble to quietly evacuate the plant while the police are on the way. I'm wondering about my sanity going around the place rounding up my guys and getting them out. Then the QA lab, etc. By the time we get out, the police were there, armed to the teeth. Can't blame them, but gives you a sinking feeling watching 3 of them go into the plant with M-16s. Knowing it could very easily not end well.
In the end, it did end well. They found him relaxing, waiting for his shift to start, very cooperative. Rumor is an ex-GF laid the story on the police to create trouble. I don't know the law, but that should be a crime of some sort, reckless endangerment or something. Winding down isn't coming easily tonight.
