Michele DavenportCLIFTON HEIGHTS, PA – Police arrested 45-year-old Michele Davenport after they say she enticed her 12-year-old daughter to fight another 12-year-old girl in a school parking lot, an incident that was caught on video.

No reports on how police originally got involved, but they released video taken at Primos Elementary School that showed Davenport encouraging her 12-year-old daughter to fight another girl they allege is her daughter’s bully.

The girls do not seem eager to fight, but after Davenport’s insistent yelling – including Davenport telling the other girl she wants to see her daughter kick her ass and informing her she would jump in if any bystanders intervened – the girls finally start swinging in that funny way girls do when they fight.

As the girls are going at it, Davenport can be heard telling her daughter to “hit her in the face!” and  “get her on the ground!” At one point they stop fighting and the victim offers a handshake to Davenport’s daughter, but Davenport eggs them on and the girls continue fighting.

“You can see [in the video] that the kids really don’t want to fight, but the mother is so adamant and profane that eventually the 12-year-olds get in a fight,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said in a news conference.

The victim was later taken to the hospital for a concussion and other injuries, and told police she was scared to fight. Davenport claims her daughter was being bullied by the other girl, and she showed up to settle the score. She does not feel she did anything wrong, according to police, and does not understand why she was arrested.

“Mom’s teaching the kids the wrong thing,” said Chitwood. “Mom acted like a moron. That’s not the way to handle these types of things. As tough as they are for a parent or grandparent or anybody else to have to deal with these bullying issues, that’s not the way to do it.”

Police say they have zero tolerance for this kind of behavior, and parents like Davenport make it hard for them to push the anti-bullying message when they start acting like bullies themselves..

Davenport is facing multiple charges, including simple assault and corruption of minors. She ended up spending the night in jail was later freed after paying ten percent of her $35,000 bail. Her daughter was charged with assault and released into the custody of her father.

Here’s the kicker, the victim in this case was a classmate of 12-year-old Bailey O’Neill, the boy who got into a schoolyard fight and later died after falling into a coma. The victim was an altar server at the boy’s funeral.
