LIKE A BOXER'S trainer leaning into the ring, Michele Davenport barked orders at her 12-year-old daughter Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of Primos Elementary School.
"Just f------ hit her! . . . Take her down! . . . Punch her in the face! . . . Kick her! . . . Do it! . . . F------ get her down! . . . Go ahead, knock her right across the head!" Davenport screamed as she convinced her daughter to fight another girl. The incident was captured on tape and turned over to Upper Darby Police.
Superintendent Michael Chitwood announced Wednesday that Davenport, 45, of Clifton Heights, has been charged with simple assault, corrupting the morals of a minor and related offenses. Her daughter was charged with simple assault and harassment. The other girl suffered a concussion, Chitwood said.
