NIAGARA FALLS, NY – A 34-year-old Niagara Falls mother forced two girls, one of them her daughter, into a street fight as a crowd of onlookers watched.
The incident was captured on a cell phone and posted to social media, leading to an investigation by Niagara Falls police.
On Thursday, detectives arrested Eula L. McCray, of 1331 Willow Avenue, and charged her with endangering the welfare of a child and menacing in the third degree, both of which are misdemeanors.
She was arraigned in Niagara Falls City Court Friday morning. Bail was set at $2,500 or $5,000 bond. She was released after her arraignment on Friday. Her next court date is in May.
The video shows McCray forcing the girls, ages 13 and 14 years old, into a fist fight in the street as a crowd gathers to watch. The fight is less than five minutes.
Neither girl was seriously injured.
