SPARTANBURG, SC (WYFF) -

An Upstate mother is accused of slapping a child she mistook for her son at a middle school, then knocking her real son to the ground.

Fairforest Middle School Principal Ty Dawkins called deputies to the school on Wednesday morning.  Dawkins said that 36-year-old Tyshekka Collier had come to the school to pick up her son, who was being suspended. 

Dawkins said when Collier walked into the office, she mistook a boy for her son, and she slapped him in the face. Dawkins said the boy was sick, and was sitting on a couch waiting for his mother to pick him up.

Dawkins said once Collier realized she had slapped the wrong boy, she apologized, and then walked over to her son and began to slap him for getting in trouble.  The arrest warrant said that Collier hit her son in the head and face, knocking him to the ground.

Collier was arrested and charged with disturbing school and two counts of assault and battery.

Her three children have been put in protective custody.
