A 34-year-old mother in Florida is facing a child abuse charge for telling her 16-year-old daughter to fight with a teenage girl who was six months pregnant.
On Friday, Celena Troupe was filmed telling her daughter to “beat her ass,” as she physically fought a pregnant minor, reported The Smoking Gun.
According to police, Troupe was aware that her daughter’s counterpart was pregnant, but she continued to encourage her daughter to fight. Police also say that Troupe “did not make any effort to stop or restrain her daughter from fighting during the first two to three minutes of the altercation.”
After police were made aware of the incident, Troupe was arrested for felony child abuse and booked into the Pinellas County jail. The St. Petersburg resident was released from custody Friday evening after posting $5,000 bond.
Troupe also has a history of numerous convictions and she has served two separate sentences in Florida prisons.
The last time she was released from prison, she was arrested three months later for escorting without a license.
