WALTON COUNTY, Ga.,None -  A Loganville Middle School teacher is behind bars for allegedly threatening a student with scissors, authorities said.

Kelly Guglietta is facing several charges, including assault and battery.

Walton County authorities said she was booked into jail Monday after a sixth-grade student reported that she lifted him off the ground when a comment was made about her hair.

The student said Guglietta has been harassing him since the incident happened.

The student said it started weeks ago when a teacher with whom he's not familiar with walked into one of his classes.  Another student made a comment about the large amount of gel the teacher had in her hair, but she thought it was him, the student said.

“So, she walked over to my desk and jerked me by my hoody and tried to pull me out of my chair,” he said.  “Then, she found a pair of scissors on the desk. Then, she took the scissors, put them against my neck and said she was going to chop my throat off with them.”
