FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – A fight involving 30 to 40 people at a park led to a juvenile male being beaten and then tased by a 17-year-old girl, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said deputies arrived to Ralph Carter Park Wednesday where they found dozens of people yelling, vehicles leaving and entering the parking lot, and the victim “vomiting continuously.”

Officials said the victim told deputies he was beaten by multiple people and “shocked multiple times with a Taser.” According to the news release, deputies found marks on his left abdomen, left arm and on his back.

A woman on scene told deputies several juveniles showed up to her home trying to fight her son, who later made plans with his friends to settle the argument by physically fighting at the park, according to an arrest report. When the juvenile and his friends arrived, there were 30-40 people at the park.

The woman said she tried to calm the situation but was unable to, according to authorities. She told deputies her son was set on “protecting his mother.”

Deputies said she told authorities at one point during the brawl, another unknown female used a baseball bat to strike a vehicle that caused the juveniles to “frantically disperse” for a moment. Deputies said they were unable to locate the bat or damaged vehicles.
