A 39-year-old Fort Walton Beach woman is charged with participating in a fight between teenage girls in front of a drug store.
One of the participants said she and her cousins were at McDonalds when another woman and her daughters pulled up at CVS.
An argument started in the parking lot, after which a fight broke out, the report said. One of the youths said she heard Patria Delois Holman screaming, “send her to the hospital,” encouraging one of the girls to continue striking another.
While one of the girls was “on the ground,” Holman “kicked (the victim) in the face and in the stomach,” according to the report. A witness reported seeing Holman kick the girl and yell encouragement at another girl.
Holman said she went to the Beal Parkway pharmacy to pick up medicine when a group of girls began taunting a relative, the report said. Holman told deputies that she was just “a mother” who didn’t want to see a child hurt and that the “situation is terrible.”
She denied striking anyone, according to the report. The girl had injuries to her face, arm and leg.
Holman is charged with child abuse without great bodily harm and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
