🔴 Police say 3 teen girls assaulted a fourth student at Atlantic City High School

🔴 The girls then fought with a substitute teacher who tried to break up the fight

🔴 Guardians fought while waiting for the girls to be released by police

Three teen girls were charged with assaulting a teacher at Atlantic City High School during a fight Wednesday before their parents erupted in a brawl while in waiting for the students to be released from police custody.

Atlantic City police said the girls, ages 16, 15 and 14, had been fighting a 15-year-old student around 12:35 p.m. when a 24-year-old female substitute teacher tried to break up the fight.  The three teens assaulted the teacher before school security personnel broke up the attack.

Harry Hurley, a talk show host at Townsquare Media's WPG Talk Radio 95.5, described a video of the fight as profanity-filled with "screaming and mayhem."

BreakingAC reported that the teacher's sister was the 15-year-old who had been initially attacked.

The girls were taken to the Clayton G. Graham Public Safety Building, each charged with aggravated assault.

While the guardians of the girls waited for them to be released they got into a fight. Brandi Braxton, 31, Tanika Joyce, 45, and Monique Spellman, 42, all of Atlantic City, were each charged with disorderly conduct and released.

Atlantic City police asked anyone with information about the fights to call 609-347-5766.
