Ohio mom charged with helping kid in class brawl
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Cincinnati's police chief has strong words for a mother accused of bursting into a high school classroom and helping her daughter beat up another student.
Chief James Craig said Monday that 31-year-old Precious Allen will be held accountable for the classroom brawl last week at Withrow High School.
Police said Allen, her daughter and another woman burst into a classroom, with mother and daughter assaulting a 15-year-old student 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.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Allen is charged with felonious assault and aggravated criminal trespass. Her daughter is facing similar charges. Another woman, who did not participate in the beating, is charged with criminal trespass.
