California Mom Arrested For Pushing Her Son To Beat Up Another Boy

CERES (AP) — Police in Central California have arrested a woman who was seen and heard on a YouTube video encouraging her young son to batter another boy.

After receiving an anonymous tip about the video, Ceres police arrested 33-year-old Jennifer Zuniga on Tuesday on suspicion of child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The video shows Zuniga yelling profanities and encouraging the boys, who appear to be teenagers, to wrestle on the ground and exchange punches. At least four other teens are also visible on the video watching the fight.

Several minutes into the fight, a man is heard on the video approaching the group and challenging Zuniga’s actions. Police say the bystander stopped the fight. No one was injured.
