2 teenage girls brawl in video, Polk woman accused of coaching girl during fight

POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) - The Polk County Sheriff's Office on Friday released disturbing video that shows two teenage girls fighting. Deputies say the video also shows a woman coaching one of the girls during the brawl.

Giselle Reyes Felix, 36, is accused of instigating a fight between the girls. She was arrested on charges of Child Abuse and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.

Neither girl was seriously injured during the fight, which happened on Nov. 29.

According to an arrest affidavit, Reyes Felix drove a 16-year-old girl to the area of where a 17-year-old girl lived in Kissimmee, because of problems between the two teens.

The 17-year-old victim was walking home from school when she heard a car horn and saw a car quickly approaching her. The 16-year-old suspect yelled at the victim and then attacked her, according to the affidavit.

Deputies say while the two girls were fighting, Reyes Felix was coaching the suspect on what to do.

When the victim fell on her back, the 16-year-old stomped on her head multiple times with her feet. A Good Samaritan was able to stop the fight temporarily, but deputies say Felix encouraged the 16-year-old to again attack the other girl.

The 16-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with Battery.

"Our adult suspect was supposed to be responsible for the 16-year-old girl. Instead, she not only drove the girl to the victim, but she also incited and encouraged a fight, and coached the girl on how to hit the victim. This was totally irresponsible," said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

The identities of the two girls have not been released.
