SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies said a woman was charged with cruelty to children after headbutting her 13-year-old daughter.

Deputies said they were called to a home on Cedar Street on Tuesday after a neighbor reported possible child abuse in progress.

Deputies said they could hear an adult female yelling and cursing and a juvenile female shouting back and crying from outside the home.

Another child in the home let deputies in and they said they encountered the mother, Amanda Addy, and her daughter shouting at the top of the stairs.

Addy told deputies the two were fighting because she could not get her daughter to clean her room. The daughter told them she was tired of being treated like a slave around the house and that her mother had head butted her in the face during the argument.

Deputies said the teen had a swollen area on her face and the mother’s head also had an area of redness. The teen was reportedly very distressed and fearful.

Deputies said DSS was called and the child was placed in a relative’s care.

Addy was arrested and charged with cruelty to children.
