MONROE, La. (AP) -Monroe police have arrested a 39-year-old Monroe woman on charges of cruelty to a juvenile.
An arrest affidavit obtained by The News-Star said the 14-year-old daughter of Rita Fletcher accused her mom of throwing her to the ground by her hair and punching her over a $20 bill.
The affidavit said Fletcher admitted hitting the girl and having an anger management problem. She said she can't stop hitting the girl once she starts.
Fletcher was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center.
It wasn't immediately clear if Feltcher had an attorney.
