HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A student at St. James High School was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center Monday morning and charged for disturbing schools. 

According to an Horry County Police incident report, a teacher asked a student to pull up his pants because they were sagging. The student reportedly complied but walked away mumbling. 

Shortly after that, 17-year-old Berill Green reportedly confronted the teacher. The teacher told police Green came up and threatened to call his lawyer as he shouted and cussed at her.

The teacher went on to add that Green threw his books to the ground, challenging her to "do something about it."

The teacher told police she felt like Green was going to assault her at this point. 

The police report says a nearby bus caught the incident on camera. WMBF requested the video, but Horry County Schools spokesperson Teal Harding declined our request over the phone citing student privacy laws. We've also sent a formal email request but have not heard back at this time.

The police report describes what the video captured, saying "the video clearly shows the suspect approach the teacher in a very aggressive manner while shouting and cussing at her."

The Assistant Principal reported that he could hear Green say things like, "I will call my lawyer up here ASAP and he will be on  you like  stink on s---." 

Green reportedly was seen walking away pointing his finger in the teacher's face and telling her to "shut the f--- up." 

The assistant principal reported to police that as Green appeared to be walking away, he was seen throwing his books to the ground and coming at the teacher again. Green reportedly challenged her by saying "what" repeatedly in a loud and threatening voice.

An arrest warrant says all of these incidents happened on school grounds at the bus drop off area and "disrupted the normal operations of the school, administration and the students who were trying to get off the bus at the time of this incident." 

Officers believed Green's actions were enough to warrant an arrest under the SC Disturbing Schools Law.

Green was released from jail under a $2,000 disposed bond Tuesday morning.
