A mother who was caught in a viral online video standing idly by as her daughter brawled with another teenage girl has been charged with child abuse.The mother, Anna Maria Clark, 44, was hit with the charges after the video showing the fight was discovered by school officials. Although the fight happened off school grounds, school officials were concerned because the child’s mother could be seen in the background.“In the video it could be seen the mother did nothing to prevent the fight or stop the fight,” said deputy Aaron Roberts in his warrant against her.During the investigation it was learned the mother was not only present during the fight but she also drove her daughter to the fight – a fight where she was hurt.“Her daughter received injuries that resulted in her having a doctor’s note from a neurologist,” Roberts said.
