Authorities said an Ohio woman took part in a fight between her daughter and another teen that was caught on cell phone video.
Police said 34-year-old Angel Izor drove her 15-year-old daughter on Saturday to Springboro Community Park to confront another 15-year-old girl over a Facebook post.
The girls got into a physical altercation that was witnessed by 10 people, police said.
Investigators said Izor soon got involved, along with 19-year-old Scott Reed and two other juveniles.
Cell phone video recorded by one witness shows Izor step forward to strike the other girl and apparently threaten her.
“I ain’t scared of nobody,” she can be heard saying. “I will f*ck you up.”
Izor was charged with assault, endangering children, and inciting violence.
Reed and the juveniles were also charged in the altercation.
“It was shocking,” said the mother of the teen struck by Izor. “She was actively involved in the fight and cheering on the fight. I see the video in my head and I’m just like, there are actually parents out there that do that.”
Police said they’re used to breaking up and investigating fights, but they said this case was unusual.
“We don’t expect parents to be driving their kids to fights,” said Springboro Police Sgt. Aaron Zimmaro. “It’s not something that should happen.”
