LOS ANGELES, Calif.–A 33-year-old mother was charged today with felony battery for allegedly striking a teacher and a teacher’s assistant during a fracas last week at John Muir Middle School in Los Angeles.
Kiki Lolita Fowler is scheduled to be arraigned March 28 in Los Angeles Superior Court on two counts of battery on a school employee in connection with the March 6 run-in.
Authorities said Fowler–who was accompanied by her 13- and 15-year-old daughters–was upset about the way her younger child was treated in class. A heated conversation ensued in which Fowler allegedly struck the teacher and the teacher’s assistant.
The assistant also was scratched, authorities said.
Fowler was arrested at the school by Los Angeles Unified School District police and was released the next day on $10,000 bail. If convicted, she faces up to three years and eight months behind bars.
The woman’s two daughters were also allegedly involved in the fracas.
The younger daughter was charged March 7 in Compton Juvenile Court with battery on a school employee–the teacher’s assistant, according to the District Attorney’s Office. She has a March 27 court date.
