A mother ended up behind bars after police saw a video that showed the woman encouraging her daughter to beat a pregnant teen, according to police in Florida.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 34-year-old Celena Sherri Troupe, after being accused of child abuse.

Troupe was charged with one count of child abuse, and was booked into the Pinellas County jail. Her bail has been set at $5,000.

According to the police investigation, the girls were fighting in the street, beating each other in the head.

A video of the incident that was uploaded to the Internet, showed the girls ripping each other’s hair in front of a large crowd of onlookers.

Troupe arrived at the scene, and began yelling at her 14-year-old daughter to “beat the a**” of the other 16-year-old girl, who was six months pregnant.

The two girls did not suffer any serious injuries.

Troupe claimed that her daughter was the victim, as the pregnant girl began the fight while traveling on the school bus from school to their home.
