PASO ROBLES, Calif. -- A traffic stop and arrest caused two Paso Robles schools to go on lockdown.

Wednesday, officers pulled over a suburban that had expired registration.

Police say the driver of the car, Manuel Antonio Ordunez Martinez, refused to identify himself and would not roll his window down.

Flamson Middle School and Georgia Brown Elementary were placed on lockdown as a precaution while officers negotiated with the suspect.

Police say they spent an hour trying to get Martinez to identify himself and exit the vehicle.

As a precaution, patrol vehicles were put in front and behind the suburban to prevent the suspect from getting away.

According to officers, Martinez put his car in reverse and officers broke a window to secure the vehicle and arrest him.

He was booked on resisting arrest and three outstanding warrants.

One of his outstanding warrants was for a felony kidnapping out of Southern California.

Anyone with information is asked to call Paso Robles police.
