SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- Deputies were called to DuBose Middle School around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday because a woman was wandering the halls and refused to leave.

According to an incident report from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, 39-year-old Bridget Sobers was wandering around the sixth grade section of the school.

School officials told deputies that Sobers did not have any business being in the school and they wanted her to leave.

District officials confirm that Sobers was a teacher at the school who resigned this year and she also has a child that attends the school.

Sobers was located and, according to the report, refused to leave and pulled out her cell phone to try to call someone at the district office. Deputies said Sobers refused to go to the front office and she "started to become obnoxious," speaking on her phone and disrupting classes by raising her voice and knocking on doors.

Sobers then locked herself in a classroom full of students which deputies got into using a master key. Sobers reportedly told the students and their teacher to leave the room. After a brief scuffle with deputies, they cuffed her and led her out of the school.

Sobers then started to have what deputies called "some kind of attack" so they called EMS. Sobers' husband managed to get her medication (hyoscyamine) and her "pain immediately subsided and her breathing returned to normal."

Sobers is charged with disturbing school, resisting arrest, and trespassing.
