Woman, daughter arrested in bullying dispute at a SC school


DALZELL, S.C. (AP) — A 67-year-old South Carolina woman and her daughter face charges of assault after a dispute over bullying at a middle school. The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office says Mamie Smith and her 37-year-old daughter, Whitley Smith, were charged with third-degree assault by mob and disturbing schools. Sheriff Anthony Dennis said the women went to Ebenezer Middle School in Dalzell on Wednesday to confront a child who they accused of bullying a family member. Once there, according to authorities, they assaulted three students — none of whom was involved in the alleged bullying incident. It’s unknown if either woman has an attorney.
