SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - The mother of a middle school student who was being suspended has been arrested after deputies say she walked into the school and slapped the wrong child. 

Spartanburg County sheriff's deputies say 36-year-old Tyshekka Collier went to Fairforest Middle School Wednesday morning to pick up her son. Principal Ty Dawkins called authorities after Collier walked into the office, mistook a boy for her son and slapped him in the face. 

Dawkins said that boy was sick and had been waiting to be picked up. 

Dawkins says once Collier realized her mistake, she apologized, then walked over to her son and knocked him to the ground. 

The police report said the victim was sitting on the couch in the main office with his face down, waiting on his mother to pick him up because he also was sick.

Collier was charged with disturbing school and assault and battery. It wasn't known if she had a lawyer. 

Her three children are now in protective custody.
