Woman Arrested for Arranging Fistfight With Daughter

Police in suburban Philadelphia say they've arrested a woman who allegedly arranged and watched a fight between her teenage daughter and a schoolmate.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said the girls apparently had an ongoing squabble over boys.

The Delaware County Times reports that the Friday afternoon fight was in a gas station parking lot. According to police, officers passing by saw the two high school students in a fistfight. They stopped the fight and charged 36-year-old Nicole Edna Holton with disorderly conduct, endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors.

Holton told police that school administrators weren't helping settle the girls' ongoing conflict, so she helped the girls do it on their own.

Chitwood says one of the girls could have been seriously injured.
