JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Jacksonville mother, Edith Riddle, 34, is charged with child abuse after a fight with another student on the campus of Dupont Middle School last week, a Jacksonville police arrest report states.
Riddle had just exited the school with her own daughter after a meeting with the vice principal on campus, according to the report. Rather than exiting the campus directly, the daughter walked out of her way through the cafeteria to engage the victim in a fight, the report says.
Riddle’s daughter pushed the victim to the ground and threw some punches before the suspect also joined in punching the victim, who was lying on the ground, according to witnesses. A witness also said Riddle appeared to have a boxing glove attached to her left hand, according to the arrest report.
◾️Riddle said she had super glued the boxing glove on and couldn’t get it off.
◾️The victim had knee and forearm abrasions.
◾️Riddle was charged with “one count of child abuse with personal/special weapon.”
