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.
