(Scroll down for video) A 14-year-old girl was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly hitting a bully who harassed her in school, police in Missouri said.

On Wednesday, 14-year-old Destiny Gleason of Warrenton, was found dead in her bedroom after hanging herself from an exercise bar.

Stephanie Clark, who is the mother of the girl, slammed the Black Hawk Middle School for not doing enough to stop bullying at school.

In one instance, the bully, who was not identified, publicized a photo of someone’s private parts with Destiny Gleason written on it.

According to the girl’s parents, after months of being tormented in school, Gleason decided to strike back. As a result, Gleason was arrested on a charge of assault.

She was ordered to start behavioral therapy, but she decided to end her life instead.
