Today’s Mother-Daughter Cheerleader Beatdown

The place: Florida (naturally). The school: Tarpon Springs High. Meet Karen J. Wood and her daughter, Kyersten Wood. They enjoy participating in many activities together, such as scrapbooking, biking, and administering beatings to Kyersten’s high school cheerleading coach.

Mom, 41, and daughter, 16, were arrested after Tarpon Springs police say the pair assaulted the girl’s cheerleading coach, Sharell Ortiz, 34, at Jasmine Sports Complex. The attack was evidently retaliation for a fight between Kyersten Wood and Ortiz’s daughter at a football game.

The ST. PETERSBURG TIMES has the details:

About 6:30 p.m. the same day, Karen Wood and her daughter confronted Ortiz at the Jasmine Sports Complex, where she was coaching a recreational league cheerleader squad.

Ortiz told police Kyersten Wood “approached her in an aggressive manner and said ‘wassup’ holding her hands in the air.”

Both Karen and Kyersten Wood began to have a physical altercation with Ortiz, who attempted to enter a small building at the complex to get away, the report said.

“Ortiz tried several times to close the door, but Kyersten and Karen continued to pull the door open,” the report said.

Ortiz said Kyersten Wood began to hit her in the face, and both Karen and Kyersten Wood shoved her to the ground, the report said. They both were hitting her in the face.

Ortiz’s left eye was swollen shut, and she had several bruises on her forehead and both arms, the report said.

As always, since there is no video, the comments are the best part of a story such as this.

Please, just say NO to printing this kind of trash. For the mother: Way to go, you are dumber than a box of rocks, and so is the clawing Cat you are rearing, or what EVAH. Oh, the humanity. For God sakes, read a damn book, or take a class on class. — RealValuesVoter from florida Sep 12th, 2009 11:53 am
