GREENWOOD COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina)- A woman has been charged with disturbing school after an incident at a middle school in Greenwood, according to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office. 

Deputies have identified the woman as Quoashia Chanelle Lewis Murray-Rapp. 

According to Greenwood County School District 50, the incident happened on September 20. 

Greenwood 50 says that the incident took place at Westview Middle School. According to the district, Lewis-Murray was at the school for a meeting but went into the hallways to search for students that she claimed were bullying her child. 

After the incident, the district says they asked Lewis-Murray to leave the school. 

According to a report from GCSO, Lewis-Murray confronted two students during the incident. The students claimed that the suspect used profanity at them. 

Lewis-Murray said she'd never intimidate someone else's child or threaten them because she wouldn't want that to happen to her children. We talked to Lewis-Murray to hear what she had to say about the situation.

“I came in as a mother figure to the school, to the girls and it just got all twisted and blown out of proportion because nothing wasn’t getting done and they felt like I violated and overstepped my boundaries as me being a mother, but there’s no boundary to protect your child. There’s none," she said. 

The district said they worked with law enforcement to press charges and Lewis-Murray was arrested Tuesday. Greenwood 50 released a statement on the incident.
