COLUMBIA - Police in South Carolina say a middle school teacher has been accused of dragging a student under a table during class, telling the boy "this is what the Nazis do to Jews."

The 12-year-old student told police he got up to sharpen a pencil at Bluffton Middle School on Wednesday when the teacher grabbed him by his collar and said, "come here, Jew."

The seventh-grade teacher, Patricia Mulholland, claims she was trying to teach the students a lesson about the Holocaust.

Attorney Robert Ferguson says the teacher's attempt to teach about World War II and the Holocaust has been taken to mean an anti-Semitic rant and it was nothing like that.

Mulholland turned herself in to face charges of assault and battery and public disorderly conduct.
