Florida Mom Arrested For Allegedly Helping Son Beat Up Other Kid
A Florida mother named Ashely Ruffin was arrested after she allegedly helped her son and his friend attack another child at their school in Palm Coast.
The victim was sitting with his friends outside of Indian Trials Middle School’s sports complex when 30-year-old Ashley Ruffin, her son, and his friend started attacking the victim.
He said Ruffin restrained him and allowed her son to continue the attack while his friends tried to intervene. Witnesses also stated that Ruffin flashed her taser during the altercation on Wednesday and the incident was reported to a school resource officer by the victim’s mother.
Ruffin was arrested on Friday and she claimed in a Facebook Live video that she did not try to hurt the victim but tried to restrain her son during the fight.
According to the New York Post, Ruffin was charged with battery and child abuse charges and the two boys involved in the fight may face similar charges.
“There are zero excuses for an adult, especially a parent, to be physically involved in a juvenile dispute,” said Sheriff Rick Staly on the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office official Facebook page.
“Kids need to have leadership from their parents and be taught how to handle disputes properly. I doubt she will receive a mother of the year award,” Rick added.
