The football game between Union Mine High School and Douglas of Nevada was canceled Friday afternoon due to concerns of safety tied to rumored protests on the El Dorado campus before or during the contest. The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that the rumored protest was in response to an arrest made on campus grounds. “Threats of a protest increased throughout the week, with rumor that some expressed the desire to incite violence, including bringing firearms to the school,” the release said. “EDSO School Resource Officers investigated the rumors and found no conclusive evidence to corroborate these threats.”
