LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A 33-year-old mother has been charged with felony battery after allegedly attacking a teacher and a teacher’s assistant at a South Los Angeles middle school last week.
Kiki Fowler was charged with two felony counts of battery on a school employee in connection to the March 6 fight in a classroom at John Muir Middle School, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Investigators said Fowler, along with her 13-year-old and 15-year-old daughters, confronted the teacher and the assistant over the way her younger daughter was being treated in class.
Authorities said there was a heated conversation before Fowler reportedly hit the two victims.
Fowler was arrested at the school by Los Angeles Unified School District police immediately following the incident.
The woman’s 13-year-old daughter was charged March 7 with battery on a school employee, which involved the teacher’s assistant.
The mother and daughter have court dates later this month.
If convicted, Fowler faces a maximum sentence of three years and eight months behind bars.
