A argue between students at North Atlanta High School escalated quickly on Wednesday (January 22) when one student had her mother join her during lunch and allegedly engage in going a 14-year-old girl in a school bathroom.
The victim of the reported charge is the daughter of Love & pop: Atlanta star Sierra Gates. Channel 2 Action News reports this was captured on cellphone video, which shows multiple girls struggling against a bathroom stall while several others observe.
“The Atlanta Public Schools cop is investigating a physical altercation that occurred at North Atlanta High School, allegedly involving two students and the parent of one of the students,” district spokesman Ian Smith told the Atlanta Journal Constitution in a statement.
“The parent was inappropriately provided access to the building by the student.”
The district did not explain how the unnamed parent gained access to the school building. Gates told Channel 2 Action News that she was most troubled that an adult had unauthorized access to her child at school.
“I was sad. I’ve been crying all day,” she said. “To see that her safety is not assured at school is very scary to me.” Gates’ attorney, Adamma McKinnon, said Gates’ daughter’s wounds were caused by the parent, who allegedly lied a black eye on the 14-year-old as well as scratches and bruises on one side of her face and the back of her head.
