Parents are supposed to set an example for their children of what not to do. Unfortunately, Irisdaly Rios never got that memo.
The 35-year old woman was arrested after jumping on a 12-year old middle school student she believed was picking on her daughter.
The incident happened in the parking lot of Hialeah Middle School in Hialeah, Florida on Tuesday (March 4).
Ashley Perez says she thought Rios came to the school to mediate the problem between her and the other student. Instead she ended up with a chipped tooth, scratches on her neck and a bruised head.
“That's why I walked to the car, because usually, if it was another mother, she'll be like, 'Oh, what's happening to my daughter. Let's fix this up,'" Perez told NBC Miami. “She got aggressive, and I think she felt her daughter was in danger. I've got scratches on my back, my teeth is broken, and my head started hurting a lot."
Rios wasn't apologetic when she explained her side of the story to NBC Miami.
"This girl's bullying my daughter every day," she said.
Perez admits that she and Rios' daughter have argued in the past, but never had a physical fight.
"Everybody loses here,” explained Hialeah Police spokesman Carl Zogby. “We'd rather people go to the proper authorities if there's bullying going on. Go to your school. Call the police before it gets to this point."
Rios has been charged with battery.
