(CBS/WCBS/AP) NEW YORK - Sabrina Milo, an art teacher at Brooklyn's Fort Hamilton High School, was arrested after she allegedly threatened to stage "Columbine all over again."

Milo was arraigned Saturday on charges of making terroristic threats and ordered to stay away from the high school.

It took Milo's family two days to raise $100,000 cash bail and get her out of jail. She was released Sunday, reports CBS station WCBS.

Milo's outburst, described as tearful and angry, happened in a teachers' lounge at the school. She allegedly said she would "settle some scores" and "do what needs doing," reports the station.

Her lawyer Andrew Stoll says she has no weapons, and the charges were unwarranted. He says she needs medication.

Several teens told the Daily News of New York that Milo was eccentric, but well-liked, and any comments about a gun were probably jokes.

Milo got into trouble at the school a year ago for striking a student's hand with a ruler. She was reprimanded, but returned for this school year, the station reports.
