BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Deputies say a mother threatened a Beaufort County middle school principal after she refused to let the woman's son participate in an eighth-grade graduation ceremony because of his bad behavior.

The Beaufort Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1P6B6vm ) from police documents that Robert Smalls International Academy Principal Nicole Holloman called deputies after a May 19 meeting with Shamekia Hayward.

Holloman says Hayward cursed at her and said the streets would get her after she told the mother her son couldn't be in the ceremony.

Hayward says she was upset because she thought Holloman was lying about her son, but denied threatening her.

Hayward is charged with felony threatening the life of a public official. It wasn't known if she had a lawyer.
