That time your mom made you come home from the party by 11 and you were so pissed and thought she was the worst mother on Earth? Yeah, you should forgive her. At least your mom didn’t make you fistfight another kid in a parking lot. Alas, we cannot say the same for Nida Longoria, 28, and Veronica Zertuche, 26, of Florida.
Longoria’s younger sister and Zertuche’s daughter had been fighting with each other. Clearly the best way to settle this dispute, their older female relatives decided, was to pit the 15- and 11-year-old girls against each other in a parking lot. The ladies brought their daughters to the fight, police say, and were videotaped standing nearby during the fist-throwing and hair-pulling. Oh, yes, they were videotaped. You didn’t think this wouldn’t end up on YouTube, did you?
Because that’s exactly what happened, which probably explains why everyone has gotten arrested. The teen girls were charged with fighting in a public space and the older women were charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. No pun intended, but sounds like a slap on the wrist to me. They both deserve one way tickets to the Michael Lohan Parenting Reeducation Academy. [NY Daily News]
