BEDFORD, Ohio-- An online fight between two teenage girls leads to a mother going to her daughter’s school and punching two students, according to police.
She's also accused of having a loaded gun on her.
Falesia Clark, 45, is in the Bedford City Jail on a $1 million bond. She is charged with two counts of assault, trespassing, and carrying a concealed weapon on school grounds.
Law enforcement officials said the judge set the bond for Clark so high because the incident happened on school property-- a message that taking a gun to a school will not be taken lightly.
Security was beefed up around Bedford High School because of a fight that happened in the parking lot after school, Monday.
Police say Clark was upset about a dispute her daughter had with a 16-year-old girl online.
"It started in the social media, with some threats that were made over social media and the parent had went up to the school earlier in the day to try to address it, and then she returned to the school later on and apparently decided to take matters into her own hands and she confronted some of the students," said Bedford Det. Sgt. Brian Byard.
Bedford police said Clark punched the girl, knocking her to the ground, then assaulted a 15-year-old girl who tried to help.
When police arrested Clark, they say they found a loaded .22-caliber pistol inside a fanny pack.
"The weapon was never brandished. The weapon was never seen until she was taken into custody. During a search of her, they found the weapon on her," Byard said.
"I think like, that was really crazy and it shouldn't have happened because she's a parent and with her having a gun, that was really dangerous for her to bring to the school because she could've hurt anybody with it," said student, Tamera Tucker.
"I just initially heard about the fight part of it and then today to hear that she had a gun as well you know, like my daughter said, it's scary knowing that a parent would come up here and attack a child and even bring a weapon in regards to it," said her mother, Tamara Tucker.
"The social media has created more problems for us. It's created some really good things for us and some really bad things," said Bedford Schools Superintendent Sherman Micsak.
Micsak sent students, parents and staff members an email about the incident. He said threats and bullying on social media often end in this type of trouble.
"We'd like to get the message to the parents that it is so important that they talk to their kids, that they monitor what they are doing when it comes to the Facebooks, the Twitters, Pinterest, those things that are out there and what their kids are doing and what they're texting and who they're texting with and who they're talking to online," said Micsak.
