Mom Turns Herself In for Encouraging Daughter’s Fight

Published March 31, 2009

The Atlanta-area mom charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor for egging her daughter on in a schoolyard fistfight surrendered to police Monday, on her 46th birthday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Ilamina Dixie Slink of Austell, Ga., who was issued a warrant for the misdemeanor, was released on a $5,000 bond. Slink had told a Pebblebrook High School official that she was taking her daughter to fight another girl.

The officer warned Slink against it, but the mother took her daughter anyway and waited with her. She then cheered the fight on, telling her daughter, “hit her, fight her, hit her in the face,” according to the warrant. Afterward, she told the crowd of students, “There will another fight next week … same time, same place.”
