WASHINGTON - A Fairfax County mother says she warned school officials her daughter was being bullied just days before the teenage girl was attacked at Centreville High School.
The fight was caught on video, and shows Wendy Settles' 15-year-old daughter arguing with another girl before being punched in the face and dragged to the ground, The Washington Examiner reports.
A Fairfax County Public Schools spokesman told the Examiner that allegations of intimidation are taken seriously. Bullying or fighting will result in disciplinary action, he said.
Warning: The video contains language some may find offensive.
