Two Florida moms got into a brawl at an elementary talent show. Both moms are now banned from entering school grounds.
The fight started as children were dancing on stage at a talent show hosted by the Lakeview Elementary School in St. Cloud, Fla., reported Click Orlando. Their brawl was captured on video.
“You’re right, it’s bad. It looks bad. The children. I’m so sorry for that,” Latisha James, one of the mothers who took part in the brawl, told KSLA-TV. She was arrested for her role in the incident.
She added, “I go to school functions all the time. This is now how I behave in public.”
James stood up to take pictures of her daughter on stage but another mother, Jessica Tyler, approached her and told her to sit down.
“I walked up to the lady. I asked her just to kneel down for a second just so I could get a picture of my niece and she turned around and said, “No, I ain’t (expletive) sitting down,’” Tyler was quoted as saying in a 911 call, according to KSLA.
Tyler then said James attacked her when she bumped into a child, reported News4Jax.com.
“Once she knocked my baby over, I just snapped,” James told the station. “And she did not say I’m sorry.”
But police believe that James instigated the fight.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that Tyler was also charged and banned from the school.
