Another day, another amazing story brought to us by the state of Florida.
Now, usually these stories revolve around Florida Man, but today’s entry brings us a new epic character that may just be an upgrade: Florida Mom.
As the story goes, 34-year-old Edith Riddle showed up to her daughter’s school for a meeting with the school’s vice-principal. After the meeting, things heated up and a wild scene played out.
Riddle apparently went to the school’s cafeteria with her daughter when her daughter pushed another student to the ground. That’s when Riddle, who was wearing a boxing glove, began punching the student along with her daughter, according to NBC affiliate WTLV-TV.
The student was taken to the hospital for their injuries.
Riddle, meanwhile, had the hilarious defense that the boxing glove was superglued to her wrist and she could not remove it.
Something tells me that the defense won’t hold up in court.
Following the incident, Riddle was arrested and charged with one count of child abuse with a personal or special weapon.
