A California mother has been arrested for allegedly encouraging her son to fight another boy in a bout that was caught on tape.
Jennifer Zuniga of Ceres, CA was arrested this week for allegedly telling her son to beat up another boy, even giving him pointers during the fight. The video (below) has circulated on the internet.
Zuniga, 33, faces charges of child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to CNN. "Jennifer can be heard and seen in the video yelling and encouraging her son to batter the other juvenile. Jennifer is heard yelling a barrage of profanities and enticing the fight," Ceres Police said in a statement.
According to the New York Daily News, police were able to track the mother down after an anonymous tip was sent to a local crime tipline.
She's the second mother to be arrested for encouraging her child to fight in recent history, wrote the Daily News. A Florida mom, April Newcomb, was arrested for a similar situation in September, and now faces up to five years in prison.
