A mother has been charged with child abuse after encouraging her teenager daughter to fight another girl as dozens of classmates videotaped the incident. April Newcomb could be heard encouraging her 16-year-old daughter to trade punches with the other girl.

And when her daughter appears to ease up from the exertion of grappling on the ground she yells:" Don't F+++++ stop!".

April Newcomb, pictured, was arrested after footage was posted on YouTube

The video of the fight at field in Palmetto, Florida was posted on YouTube and led to a police investigation and Newcomb's arrest.

Newcomb, 39, admitted to police that she had been wrong to encourage her daughter, but said the fight was going to take place no matter what she said.

April Newcomb has been charged with child abuse after encouraging her teenager daughter to fight

'Of course, we're both wrong and I understand that, and I understand where y'all are coming from,' she told police.

'I think unfortunately it was going to happen, no matter what.'

The fight took place a week ago after Newcomb's daughter, who has not been named, and another girl agreed to settle their differences after school. Video footage showed the two girls throwing punches, pulling hair and knocking each other to the ground. As the two brawled, dozens of students can be seen gathered around, many recording the incident on their phones.

Newcomb can be heard on the video shouting words of encouragement as the fight went on. A person videotaping the fight can also be heard to shout, 'Go for the headshot. The headshot.' The fight, which lasted for five minutes, ends when police arrive and the teenagers scatter.

'The entire incident is disturbing, especially because the parent did not intervene,' said police spokesman Dave Bristow.

Newcomb was being held in jail after failing to raise the pds10,000 bond to secure her release. She claimed the fight had already started when she arrived and she wanted to make sure her daughter was not seriously hurt.

The YouTube video has removed the original video from its site, but another version has since been uploaded.

Reminds me of the scumbag parents that encouraged their toddlers (siblings I believe) to fight each other, which was worse

I could understand not breaking it up, but to sit there and cheer her on is a little over the top.

when I was in school, this kids aunt was egging us on. The guy pushed into me, so I put him down on the ground, got on top of him and put my knees over his arms and kept hitting him until I thought he was bloody enough.

It took us at least 10 minutes to get the fight started, we just faced off at each other. His aunt was yelling at us to get it going as well as some other kids from school.

Then she said that I didn't fight fair and later that night their parents came to my house and my dad was pissed.

A responsible parent would. You don't agree Laz?

If I see two attractive 18 year-old women wrestling, am I obligated to break it up or can I just watch? Assume I'm not related to them.

well, that was stupid. If (big if) there was some sort of scenario where having your kid fight someone else was even somewhat somehow understandable, you need plausible deniability. You do not get near it, you do not watch, and you sure as hell dont video tape and yell out encouragements.
