Three Delaware day-care workers are accused of urging two 3-year-old toddlers to fight each other while the adults egged them on -- and videotaped it, police said.
"No pinching, only punching," one of the adults allegedly coaches the children. It's the story that is setting the Internet on fire Tuesday, along with "toddler fight club" headlines.
The employees of Hands of Our Future day-care were arrested Monday after police viewed "the cellphone video of an incident that occurred in March of 2012 where the three female employees watched and encouraged two 3-year-olds to fight each other while at the day-care," according to a Dover Police Department statement posted online.
The suspects have been charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangerment and conspiracy. They were identified as Tiana Harris, 19, and Lisa Parker, 47, both of Dover; and Estefania Myers, 21, of Felton.
According to police, "Hands of Our Future LLC Daycare has had their City of Dover Business License suspended pending a hearing."
