Does to 'take somebody' mean to reprimand? I was told so but I can't seem to find it on any dictionary yet.

The teacher took the student as he was misbehaving in class.

"to take somebody to task" is the phrase you're looking for, I think.

Yes, it seems so. Thanks. The teacher must've made a mistake then. Emotion: wink
