A Florida mother has been arrested after an alleged fight with one of her daughter’s classmates.
Edith Riddle, 34, was taken into custody last week still wearing the only boxing glove she had stuck on herself, First Coast News reported.
According to a police report, Riddle had been summoned to Dupont Middle School in Jacksonville to meet with the vice-principal about issues between his grade 8 daughter and another student.

Witnesses said the mother arrived at the meeting with a boxing glove on her left hand, telling the school she had it super stuck to her wrist and couldn’t take it off.
Riddle was supposed to leave school immediately after the meeting; but at 12:14 p.m., a school security officer reported hearing a teacher’s “frantic” announcement on the school radio that a fight had taken place outside the cafeteria.
When the officer arrived, he told police that the gloved Riddle had been involved in a physical fight with a 12-year-old schoolgirl.
Witnesses claimed that Riddle’s daughter pushed the victim to the ground and punched her, before her mother started punching the girl while she was lying on the ground.

The victim suffered grazes on his knees and forearms, the police report said; she was taken to hospital for evaluation.
When her parents arrived at school, they insisted on laying criminal charges.
Riddle was arrested and charged with one count of child abuse with a personal / special weapon.
The victim’s mother, Crystal Wiltsee, told CBS47 she held the school as much to blame, for leaving the woman on the school grounds with boxing gloves on.
“It’s not normal,” she said.
