She was arrested on Route 6A in West Barnstable shortly after the alleged threats took place. She was teaching World Literatures and Multicultural Literature at the college.

College spokesman Michael Gross said Wednesday that MS McGowan became agitated and approached the college's chief of security Phil Ryan with apparent concerns about her classroom.
