Ohio School Brawl: Mum And Daughter Charged

A mother has been accused of bursting into her daughter's school classroom in Ohio and helping her beat up another student.

Police said Precious Allen would be held accountable for the brawl last Thursday at Withrow High School in Cincinnati.

She has been charged with felonious assault and aggravated criminal trespass.

The 31-year-old's daughter is facing similar charges, after the pair attacked the 15-year-old with their fists and a combination lock.

The student suffered cuts and bruises, and a teacher ended up with a black eye in the scuffle.

"Her daughter and the other young lady started to tussle with each other and the mother ... thought the other young lady was getting the upper hand," Police School Resource Officer Shawn George told The Cincinnati Enquirer.

"So mom got involved and started punching the young lady and held her down while her daughter was striking her in the face with a combination lock she had in her hand," he alleged.

Another woman, who did not participate in the beating, has been charged with criminal trespass.
