Jamie Louise Rathburn was arrested in May, and an arrest warrant says she's charged with disturbing or disrupting schools as well as non student interfering, Fox Carolina reports.

Police said the woman was captured on CCTV going into Greenbrier Elementary School in Greenville unauthorised. She then approached students before yelling at them in a "threatening manner".

The statement said the school's principal and teacher were taking "active steps" to protect her son, Fox Carolina reports.

"Prior to her illegally entering the school building, yelling at a large group of small children and cursing at employees.
