WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County mother is charged for assaulting a teenager during a fight at Ashley High School.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office says on February 7 Shellie Cloyd Rodriguez, 38, went to the school to pick up her 16-year-old daughter. The mother and daughter reportedly went to a classroom to get the girl’s assignments. When they got to the room, investigators say the daughter got into a fight with another girl.

Deputies say Rodriguez pulled the other girl, who is 15, off her daughter, pushed her down and got on top of her. At that point, they say another girl tried to pull Rodriguez off the girl. Rodriguez allegedly then hit the second girl before turning her attention back to the girl on the floor until they were finally separated.

Rodriguez, her daughter and the girl she fought with were charged with affray after the fight. Investigators believe there were already tension between the girls leading up to the fight.

After the District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and a video of the incident, deputies today arrested and charged Rodriguez with assault and battery, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and disorderly conduct. She is out of jail on a $1,000 secured bond.

A Sheriff’s Office spokesman says investigators have decided not to release the video because of its potential impact on the case and because of the juveniles involved.

  • Always someone elses fault

    I have two children that attend/attended Ashley. They are in honors classes, dual enrollment, near 4.0 gpa, graduated early & excell in a number of sports and all while enjoying their school & their “redneck” friends. THIS SCHOOL CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE WORSE is such a laughable comment especially with the comment about “when parents would come to the class they would always step out in the hall as to not disturb the class”. This sounds pretty good to me. Is there big gang violence and a bunch of thugs? We you not able to say no to drugs (which are in every school since they were invented)? Why is it when PEOPLE do wrong things in their life its ALWAYS blamed on someone/something else. So, what exactly did THIS SCHOOL do to RUIN YOUR LIFE? Just curious.

  • hmmm. . .

    We can all say what we think but no one really knows the whole story unless present, which we were not. It’s always easy to make a comment but no one could know how they would react unless put in a situation. I’m not saying what the mother did was right but it was her reaction. It’s also easy to find fault in one person or organization as well but unless you know all the facts, which you never will, judge not. Hind sight is always after and that is just too bad or all involved. Best of luck to everyone involved. And one final thing for all to remember. . . The media in all forms likes a good story and so do we. There you go.

  • Former Ashley Student

    This school changed my life for the worse and it seems like Ashley is doing the same for this family. All these comment sounds like rumors; I’m saying this because if everything you just said was true, the mother would be getting charged for much worse than this. Any mother would have done the same thing especially when the school does nothing to protect its students. Step back and think if this was you, what would you have done? Has anyone ever though the mother came to pick up her daughter because the daughter felt unsafe? It’s obvious because in the news article it states the mother took her up to the class to get her school work, and again in the article it states the administration knew there was tension. So why didn’t anyone walk the mother and the girl to the class? The school did NOTHING to protect the mother’s child from the attack. The child obviously did what was right to avoid the attack by calling her mother. The school took no steps to prevent this. And what I want to know where was the teacher, and did the fight happen in the class room? Being a former student anytime another teacher, or a parent came to the class they would always step out in the hall as to not disturb the class. So if the mother and the daughter were in the hall how is it so that the other girls end up in the hall? Sounds like the daughter got attacked to me.

    First of all the mom and the daughter went to the school looking to fight with this girl that’s how it started! They had no buisness being at the school at all, especially the mother! But even so the mother only got into the fight because her daughter started something that she couldn’t fininsh,and as far as her trying to stop the fight or protecting her daughter that’s bullcrap too because if she was doing that then why was the mother slamming this other girls head into the ground while choking her and then when another student tried to help the mother hit her too and went back for more with the first girl! She deserves what she got and then some and she sure does not deserve to be a mother! What kind of mother allows her child to act like that and then is going to do the same thing!
