Moms Brawl at Talent Show, Banned from Kids' Elementary School

Two moms are banned from a Florida elementary school after getting into a brawl last week at a talent show.

It started when Latisha James, a mother of six, stood up to take pictures of her daughter on stage at Lakeview Elementary School's talent show in St. Cloud, Fla.

Jessica Tyler claims she approached James and asked her to sit down because she was blocking the view.

"I walked up to the lady. I asked her just to kneel down for a second just so I could get a picture of my niece and she turned around and said, 'No, I ain't (expletive) sitting down," Tyler later recounted in the 911 call.

Tyler then stepped in front of James to get a photo and accidentally knocked over James' 3-year-old daughter on her way back to her seat.

"Once she knocked my baby over, I just snapped," James told ClickOrlando.com. "And she did not say I'm sorry."

James reportedly tried to choke Tyler as the women engaged in a heated brawl, swearing at each other and fist fighting so bad another parents had to intervene, police said.

James was later arrested on suspicion of battery.

"I didn't go to the school with the intention of messing up the show or putting my hands on anybody," she told News4Jax.com. "I don't behave like that. I cannot say how much, how remorseful I am. I am totally remorseful. I've never been to jail before."

Tyler, who was not arrested, feels she was the victim and is upset that she won't be able to attend her daughter's upcoming fifth-grade graduation ceremony.
