TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A fight between two girls near Tampa that was
posted on YouTube led to charges against two adults who allegedly
encouraged the fisticuffs.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said Friday that the
two adults were charged with contributing to the delinquency of a
minor.

Someone reported to deputies Thursday that the video of the two
juveniles fighting had been posted to YouTube. They say it
documents a 26-year-old woman encouraging her daughter to hit the
other girl, and the other girl's 28-year-old sister cheering her
on.

Detectives said there has been a long-standing feud between the
families.

The video shows one girl pulling the other's hair and hitting
her in front of a closed sheriff's office substation in their
neighborhood south of Tampa.
