ORLANDO, Fla. – A brawl between two moms at an elementary school talent show was captured on home video. Now the mother who was arrested is speaking out.
Latisha James regrets embarrassing herself and her six kids when she got into a brawl during this talent show at Lakeview Elementary School. The altercation began when James stood up to take pictures of her daughter on stage, which she says she did because other parents were blocking her view.
Jessica Tyler approached James and asked her to sit down, as she later explained in a 911 call.
“I walked up to the lady. I asked her just to kneel down for a second just so I could get a picture of my niece and she turned around and said, “No, I ain’t (expletive) sitting down.” said Jessica Tyler.
Moments later Tyler steps in front of james to take her own photos. While returning to her seat, Tyler knocks over James’s 3-year-old daughter. Tyler told police it was an accident.
James admits she followed Tyler back to her seat and put her hands on the other mother’s throat, although she claims tyler shoved her first.
Now James is worried this altercation will cost her her job at a hospital.
If convicted, James she could face up to a year behind bars.
As for the other mother, police have forwarded the case to the State Attorney’s Office to determine whether she should face charges as well.
