Florida mom beats up daughter's rival at school

-  A mother faces multiple charges after police said she went to a South Florida high school during dismissal and knocked the cellphone out of the hand of her daughter's rival, while hitting the girl several times.

But the Monday afternoon confrontation didn't end there, police said in an arrest report for Ernstlatta LaFrance, 30. When the Carol City High School student went to LaFrance's nearby townhome to get her phone, the woman broke the teen's middle finger and destroyed her car with an ax.

LaFrance's partner, Erlisa Evans, 28, stepped outside the home and fired a gun into the air three times, according to an arrest report. She's now facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and firing a gun into the air.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/2obILjv ) reports the incident was sparked by an earlier fight between LaFrance's daughter and a group of girls at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition.

LaFrance also posted a video of the fight on Facebook, warning "those messing with her daughter to be aware," the report said.

"The defendant also bragged on Facebook telling the victim that suffering two black eyes was not the end and she would use a gun," the officer wrote in the arrest report.

LaFrance now faces a number of charges including strong-armed robbery, child abuse and aggravated battery and is being held on a $38,000 bond. Jail records don't list an attorney for LaFrance or Evans.
