We have new information on the Hephzibah mother who says she was banned from her child's elementary school. The woman at the center of the controversy has filed a lawsuit against the Richmond County Board of Education.

The Richmond County Board of Education Police incident has now been released to WJBF News Channel 6.

The report states that when Tonya Mount was interviewed on October 23rd, she "appeared to be demented and kept rambling about other problems she was having in her life".

The report also states that Mount admitted that "some of the conversations she had with the school staff could have been taken out of context".

The report also states Mount offered officers her volunteer card and agreed to comply with the rules of the criminal trespass warning, which were to contact the principal before coming to the school.

All of this is what Richmond County Director of School Safety Alfonzo Williams says those criminal trespass warnings are supposed to do. "Our officers show up, we conduct an investigation, we ask questions, we assess the situation and make a determination on the most appropriate action," Williams says.
