Another Mom Gets Arrested For Serving As Ferdie Pacheco During Teen Daughter's Brawl With Classmate
As her teenage daughter fought a high school classmate, a Florida mother stood nearby and shouted encouragements such as “hit harder” and “bite her,” according to cops who yesterday arrested the woman for child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Sandra Padilla Miranda, 38, was busted after cops viewed a video of the brawl, which occurred January 18 outside an apartment complex in Orlando. The combatants, aged 14 and 17, attend Boone High School, where a previous altercation resulted in each girl being suspended.
According to an Orlando Police Department arrest affidavit, the video--which was posted to one of the teens’s Facebook pages--showed Miranda “repeatedly encouraging” her daughter to throttle the other girl. The teen told cops that she was fearful for her safety because Miranda “was there supporting and protecting her daughter but her mother was not there to protect her.”
Pictured in the above mug shot, Miranda told cops that she worried the girls would “continue to fight in school so she wanted it settled,” adding that she “was wrong for encouraging the fight.”
Miranda was freed from custody after posting $1100 bond on the felony and misdemeanor charges.
