Teenage fight could lead to charges for Ohio father

HAMILTON, Ohio (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A fight between two teenage girls could lead to charges against an Ohio father.

The fight was caught on video and posted on social media.

Police say the 13-year-old gets on top of the 15-year-old, and the younger girl's father starts egging her on.

He can be heard telling her to hit harder, to scratch her eyeballs out, and even referring to the 15-year-old as a "cry baby," and telling her that her "daddy's gonna get it too."

"If parents want to cheer on their children, that's great; cheerlead them in sports, cheerlead them to do well in school," said Sergeant Ed Burns, with Hamilton Ohio Police. "No responsible parent is going to cheerlead their children to beat another child up."

Hamilton Police say the parents of the girl who took the beating don't want any police action.

That means there likely won't be any assault charges filed, but if and when they positively identify the man in the video, police will pursue charges of inciting to violence.
