Ruffin was charged with assault and child abuse. She has denied that she tried to hurt a child and claimed in a Facebook Live video that she was only trying to steer her son away from the altercation.
The youths involved in the altercation may also face assault charges, authorities said.
Flager County Sheriff Rick Staly said he doubts Ruffin “gets a mother of the year award.”
“There is no excuse for an adult, especially a parent, to be physically involved in a youth dispute,” Staly said in a statement. “Children need to have the leadership of their parents and they must be taught how to handle disputes properly.”
