SALISBURY — Eleven people were charged in an Enochville fight orchestrated by the parents of juveniles, authorities said.
At least 19 people were at the fight in the 8000 block of Karriker Road on July 14, according to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report.
The incident was recorded on a cell phone and later uploaded to Facebook.
Investigators said they collected several cell phones from those accused of being involved in the fight.
During the investigation, deputies learned the incident had been set up and that parents of several children had brought the juveniles to Karriker Road to fight.
In one report, an officer said a teenage girl’s mother wanted her daughter to fight.
“The child’s mother arranged and encouraged her to fight against another female participant,” the report said.
A piece of the female juvenile’s clothing was torn during the fight, the report said, and the “fight participant’s bare breast was exposed.”
One juvenile also suffered a broken nose during the altercation.
Deputies said they found photos of a marijuana plant after seizing the cell phones used in the recording.
Authorities found a marijuana plant at nearby Montana Drive.
