PHILADELPHIA — A mom from Philadelphia is under arrest after she allegedly incited her 12-year-old daughter to fight another girl. The incident was captured on video outside Primos Elementary School Sunday afternoon. The video was released by police Wednesday.

"Mom still does not believe this is a big deal," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. "She can't understand why she was arrested."

Police say it's tough to send home the anti-bullying message when parents act like this. "Mom's teaching the kids the wrong thing," Chitwood said. "Mom acted like a moron."
