A mother was arrested after being caught on camera cheering her daughter on during a school fight.
Nicole Morlan, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was seen in the video encouraging and applauding her daughter while the girl fought a fellow student outside of Taft Middle School. Authorities said that the brawl was the result of an argument earlier in the day between the two girls.
A teacher attempted to intervene but was punched and pushed to the ground, with Morlan standing nearby making no effort to break up the fight. The mother was arrested and charged with two felony charges and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. If convicted, she could face jail time and thousands of dollars in fines.
