FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) - A Forest Park woman has been arrested and charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after police say she drove her two daughters to fight with other juveniles.

Police say Sonja Leach, 37, took her two daughters to the fight after a threat to fight was allegedly received via Facebook and text messages.

According to Forest Park investigators, the fight took place September 19th in the 600 block of West Sharon Road at the City of Forest Park Activity Center. The fight was not reported to police that day, despite the allegation that Leach stood by and watched the fight take place.

The investigation started on September 20 after Leach reported to Winton Woods School officials that her daughter had been bullied. School officials then contacted the Forest Park Police School resource officer.

Police have cell phone video of the fight but it is not being released at this time.

Sonja was arrested Sunday night. Three juveniles have been charged in connection with the fight. Police also say that Hamilton County Child Services is investigating the matter.  The two girls are in their mother's custody now.
