WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) — High school can be hard, especially when you add Facebook into the equation. Two Columbus County teenaged girls decide to take their battle of words online to a battle of fists in the street.

In a report that WWAY obtained from Whiteville Police, we’ve learned that last Wednesday police officers responded to a fight in the Whiteville Plaza parking lot. The responding officer writes in his report when he arrived here in the parking lot 30-40 people were gathered and, when they saw him they ran to their vehicles.

The officer writes he was able to stop one of the cars belonging to Aneshia Cartret. She told the officer her teenaged daughter was in a fight with Crystal Fipps’s daughter over something posted on Facebook.

The officer reports that Cartret’s daughter was bleeding from her head and arm and had blood on her sweatshirt, but when he asked her mother if she needed medical attention, Cartret said no.

WWAY gained access to Cartret’s daughter Shelby’s Facebook page and saw several comments about the fight.

One friend writes, “Just watched the fight, you went ham. Talk about hard in the paint.”

Another reads, “I just want to know where the video is.”

And just minutes before police say the fight began, Shelby posted a comment saying, “She just doesn’t know what she’s getting herself into.”

The report says that Shelby’s mother was at the fight, which may be problematic for her career as a student accountability officer at South Columbus High School. Columbus County Schools Superintendent Dan Strickland says Cartret has been on leave due to personnel issues since Friday.

WWAY found this is not the first time Aneshia Cartret has been in trouble. We found seven charges against her ranging from communicating threats to simple assault and stalking.

We’ve tried to contact Aneshia and Shelby Cartret. So far, though, we’ve had no luck reaching them.

Really???? All of us in Columbus County are not idiots and I think that statement was completely rude and disrespectful to other decent, hard working people in the County….And do you live in a community/county that has a 0% crime rate and a 0% rate on teenage fighting, or fighting period? I seriously hope that you are not an adult to post such a comment? Because its obvious that you have the brain of someone with ZERO education and you have a total lack of respect for others. Just because some do stupid things doesnt mean that YOU can judge all of the other GREAT people that live in this County…Including me..Thank you

CC/Whiteville is one of the most redneck and white trash towns around. Everyone under 25 is married and knocked up (some with 3-4 kids by that age). The fun thing to do in this town is park your redneck “Carolina Squatted” truck that your daddy bought you in the parking lot of Walmart and talk crap to anyone who walks or drives by you. The “well-to-do” of the town seem to think that its a little piece of heaven when the town ranks among the bottom in the state of valued categories like education but among the top in illegal drug use, unemployment and addiction. And I agree with the poster above…if you happen to have the misfortune of having to move there, they will treat you like an outsider. God forbid that you actually dress nice because they will all automatically assume that you think you are better than them. There is nothing in this town for families…other than the bowling alley which has regular fights during the week. Most of the business are mom-and-pop shops that set their own hours…none of which are open after 1 on Saturdays and almost everything is closed on Sundays. This video is a perfect portrayal of the youth in this town and is only a glimpse of how good this town will be in the future. Most of the people that grow here, never leave it…

The people of CC are some of the most backward, hypocritical types that I’ve ever seen. Most of them are related, because hardly any outsiders ever move there, as the people of CC don’t like outsiders. The type of behavior in the video, can be seen around the area most every night.
