Woman Charged With Forcing Two Toddlers To Fight

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Not only did she allegedly order two toddlers to get into a fistfight with each other, she videotaped it and posted it on Facebook.

Those are the charges levelled against 21-year-old Latonya Davis, who faces two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

According to prosecutors, Davis pitted her 2-year-old daughter against a 3-year-old boy she was baby-sitting on June 25th, and again on July 2nd.

“Y’all better ball up some fists!” Davis can be heard saying on the Facebook video.

Meanwhile, both children can be heard sobbing even as they lob tiny haymakers at each other.

A probable cause statement issued by prosecutors notes that the defendant “took obvious pleasure and amusement in causing a three and a half year old child and a two and a half year old to engage each other in a physical fight.”
