Edith Riddle Wiki – Edith Riddle Biography
Edith Riddle, of Jacksonville, was arrested on a child abuse charge stemming from the alleged beatdown last week at Dupont Middle School, news station KVUE reported.
Police said a school safety officer had heard a “frantic” announcement over the school’s radio system about a fight outside the cafeteria around noon March 18. Riddle’s daughter threw some punches on the victim before Riddle joined in, throwing punches herself. Riddle had a boxing glove on her hand when she arrived at the school and had told officials it was superglued to her wrist and unable to be removed, according to FCN.

Charges – Arrested
The victim’s parents arrived at the school and told police she wanted to pursue criminal charges before taking the child to a nearby hospital. Riddle was arrested and charged with one count of “child abuse with a personal/special weapon.” A Florida mom showed up to her daughter’s middle school with a boxing glove — and allegedly attacked a student, authorities said. When the officer got there, he found Riddle in a physical altercation with a female student.
Riddle had been on campus for a meeting with the vice-principal and her daughter, cops said. Rather than exit the building afterward, the daughter made a beeline for the cafeteria to fight a girl, police said. Witnesses told police Riddle’s daughter shoved the girl and threw some punches — before the mom also allegedly began walloping the victim.
Bizarrely, a bystander told authorities the mom appeared to have a boxing glove on her left hand. Riddle already had the glove on when she arrived on campus — insisting that it was super-glued to her wrist and she couldn’t remove it, according to KVUE.
The girl suffered bruises to her knees and forearms, authorities said. She was later taken to a hospital for a follow-up evaluation. Her parents told authorities they wanted criminal charges filed against Riddle.
