BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge woman was arrested Tuesday and charged with terrorizing after she was accused of making threatening remarks to her child's 5th grade class at Magnolia Woods Elementary.

According to reports, Donna Wilson, 44, arrived at the school around noon to check her child in. Wilson was told by school administration that her child may have been bullied the day before, but the school administration handled the situation and counseled the students in reference to teasing her child.

Reports say that Wilson then took her child to the classroom where she confronted the teacher and students about bullying her child. The report says she threatened to have her husband return to the school and then made threatening remarks referencing the school shooting incident in Connecticut.

Wilson was escorted from the classroom and left the campus.

School administration contacted the Sheriff's Office and the school was placed on "Hold and Secure" as a precautionary measure.

Detectives found Wilson at her home and took her into custody. Wilson said she made the statements because she felt her child was being bullied and she wanted the children to understand about not bullying.

She also said she did not mean to reference Connecticut, and she was sorry for making the statement. She will be booked into parish prison on a terrorizing charge.
