Leesburg -- A lawsuit against the Lee County School system has been dropped after the woman who filed it has been arrested on drug charges.

Forty-five-year-old Sissy Garvey sued the school system in January, claiming her eight year old autistic son was placed in a closet-sized time out room at his school.

Friday night, Garvey was arrested on cocaine possession charges. Her attorney dropped the suit against the school system yesterday.

Also arrested with Garvey was 19-year old Charles Langford of Oakfield. He is also charged with possession of cocaine. Both remain in the Lee County jail.
