Parent arrested, accused of threatening school class
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies in East Baton Rouge arrested a parent after they said she made threats to her child's class and teacher, including references to the recent school shootings in Connecticut.
Deputies arrested Donna Wilson, 44, in suspicion of terrorizing after the incident today at Magnolia Woods Elementary.
Investigators said Wilson went to the school around noon to check her child in, and was told by administrators about bullying that happened on Monday. Administrators said they addressed the situation, and counseled the students who teased her child.
Deputies said Wilson then took her child to their fifth-grade classroom and confronted the teacher and students there about the incident. They said she made several threats to have her husband come to the school, and made references to the recent shootings in Newtown, Conn.
Wilson was escorted from the campus, and security at the school was heightened as a precaution. Deputies went to Wilson's home, where they arrested her. They said Wilson admitted to making the threats, and said she didn't mean to reference Connecticut.
She will be booked into the parish jail later this evening.
