Mother arrested for letting sons shoot BBs at homeless man

-
A central Florida woman is facing charges after police say she allowed her three sons to shoot BBs at a homeless man.
 
News outlets report 36-year-old Amina El-Zayat of DeLand was arrested Sunday on aggravated battery, contributing to the delinquency of minors and child neglect charges.
 
A DeLand police report says El-Zayat was driving when her children shot BBs from two airsoft rifles at the man who was picking through garbage at a gas station.
 
The victim told police the children cursed him and fired, then later returned and did it again.
 
Police found the airsoft rifles and BB pellets in El-Zayat's vehicle.
 
El-Zayat told police she's been having trouble with transients rummaging through the trash at a nearby car wash her family owns. It's unclear if she has an attorney.
