Fight Mom Motion

FEBRUARY 4--Despite videotaped evidence to the contrary, a Florida mother claims that she did not egg her daughter on during a public brawl with a fellow high school classmate, according to a new court motion.

April Newcomb, who is facing a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, this week asked a Florida judge to dismiss that count, which stemmed from a fight last September between her 16-year-old daughter and another girl.

In her Circuit Court motion, Newcomb claims that a video of the fisticuffs only shows her saying “get up” to her child. She also argues that her “mere presence at the location of the consensual altercation, coupled with the statement ‘get up,’ does not constitute” the crime charged.

Newcomb apparently has overlooked several video clips showing her yelling encouragements with the brio of Bundini Brown. The 39-year-old Newcomb loudly advised her daughter to “punch her in the fucking body” and “kick her ass” as the teen was getting throttled by her larger opponent.

A 15-year-old spectator interviewed by police said that Newcomb yelled at her to “back the fuck up” when she apparently got too close to the teen fighters. The girl added that Newcomb was telling her daughter “where to hit” her adversary.

Newcomb, pictured in the above mug shot, is scheduled for a March 8 pre-trial conference. (3 pages)

to westrte, Please look up "egg" In Webster's Dictionary: Egg has a couple of meanings. One of them is a verb meaning " to incite to action". I do hope that you can read.
I agree with the general opinion of "White Trash" but I want to know who the reporter was that wrote this article?? "Egg" is a reproductive result of birds. Do reporters not need to know proper English and Grammer anymore? Our society is going downhill fast. . . .
White Trash.
wow...what a great mom.
Sounds like she was just acting as corner man... errrrr, corner woman for her daughter's fight. Now that's motherly love. "Pull her hair! Pull her hair! Get up! Get the **** up! Now punch her! Use the jab! Work the mother****ing jab!"
this evil b i t c h should be publically beat naked a bull whip with razor on the end of it. daughter should be forced to watch as "it" is no better than "mommy".
Let the daughter challange Bristol Palin for the no-class hillbilly championship.
if she does, maybe you can sell one of your welfare food stamps for the price of admission. or would that put you one food stamp shy of obtaining more of your precious "mexican yogurt"?
you are an "effin m o r o n". do us all a favor and die the quicker the better
So sorry. Guess it worked the first time!
Just because its in the video, doesn't mean it really happened...
It'll be funny when other inmates & prison guards deny egging on her opponent(s) at whatever correctional facility she gets assigned to. BTW: Nice jorts, Mom-of-the-Year.
Florida? Of course.
She should be caned on the naked buttocks.
That might be too good for her. Tasing her several times a day for every day she's in prison would be far more appropriate.
Hillbilly redneck mom needs to have daughter removed and brought up by somebody that can teach her some class.
