A woman in Florida threw a series of punches at a student during a confrontation at a bus stop, shortly after urging a juvenile involved to “beat her a**,” according to footage from the fight shared by police.

Recently, a verbal confrontation between two juveniles waiting at a bus stop took place, Haines City Police Department said.

Words, however, turned into a physical attack when a brawl broke out between multiple people, including adults, the footage shows.

In the video clip, two juveniles, one in a gray shirt and the other in a red hoodie, are seen throwing punches at each other, but they are quickly separated by adults and other students.

Then the juvenile in the gray shirt jumped on top of another female student in a blue shirt and started landing a series of punches to the student's head as she lay on the ground.

Then, an adult, later identified as 28-year-old Taityana D. Duffy, appears to be standing over the pair and recording the fight on her phone while screaming, “Beat her a**,” officials said.

The juvenile in the red hoodie can be seen jumping back into the fray to pull the juvenile in the gray shirt off the other girl.

It then appears that Duffy hits the student in the red hoodie, shouting at him to “get the f*** off her” as the students start to disperse and the video cuts off.


Police responded to the bus stop after receiving calls about a fight. After identifying those involved in the altercation, officials said Duffy was placed under arrest.

Authorities claimed Duffy, a guardian of a student at the bus stop, “instigated, jeered and intervened” in the fight and then “battered a juvenile during the incident, authorities said.
