SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California woman is accused of grabbing an 11-year-old boy by the throat while confronting him about bullying her daughter.

The Sonoma County Sheriff's office said Sunday that 30-year-old Delia Garcia-Bratcher came to an elementary school around lunchtime Friday.

Authorities alleged the Santa Rosa mother had her son, who also attends the school, point out the boy to her and grabbed him by the throat in front of numerous children. The young witnesses told a deputy she threatened the boy about bullying her daughter. The school staff took photos of red marks on the boy's neck.

Garcia-Bratcher was arrested on suspicion of felony child abuse. She was released from jail after posting a $30,000 bail.

A phone number for a Delia Bratcher was disconnected.
