MIAMI – A 35-year-old Florida mom was arrested after she was recorded on a cellphone fighting a 12-year-old girl in a middle school parking lot.

Irisdaly Rios is facing battery charges for punching Ashley Perez, a classmate of her daughter at Hialeah Middle School.

Rios can be seen on video exiting her car, and after an exchange of words, punching the girl in the face.

Perez suffered a chipped tooth, scratches and bruises from the brawl.

Rios told NBC Miami, “This girl bullies my daughter everyday.”

The girl admitted that she and Rios’ daughter have argued, but thought the mom was going to try and patch things up between them.

The mother of the boy who recorded the video posted it on the internet, which lead Rios’ arrest.

Police say Rios should have gone to the school to report the bullying.
