In local news, a golf club was used as a weapon by an Orlando mother during an altercation on Thursday night. Now, a boy who allegedly was trying to help facilitate the situation has 13 staples in his head after being treated at the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.
Orlando police officers say Latanya Oliver’s daughter was fighting with a girl outside a home on Sunset Drive on Thursday night, when the girl’s brother came out to break it up.
Witnesses told investigators that the boy was trying to stop his sister from fighting, when Oliver grabbed the golf club and hit him. That woman was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated child abuse. She was released from the Orange County Jail Friday on a $5,000 bond.
The boy was treated at Arnold Palmer Hospital with a cut on his head. Sharon Troche said her son received 13 staples for the laceration on his head. Torche said, instead of resorting to violence, Oliver should’ve handled things differently.
“When you’re an adult, you could’ve come to me and talk to me,” she said.
