An Oak Ridge mother is accused of encouraging her daughter to fight another girl.
Court documents show Amanda McPeters drove her daughter to Hilltop Market on Illinois Avenue on April 2.
Oak Ridge Police say she allowed, even encouraged her daughter to fight another girl there.
Witnesses say McPeters yelled at her daughter several times to "hit her, stop talking and hit her."
Police say she did not try to stop the fight or call police.
The store owner told police that when he asked McPeters to stop her daughter and leave the property, she became "disorderly and confrontational, yelling and cussing him and refused to leave."
McPeters is facing a child abuse and neglect charge.
