Some adults really need adult supervision.
A 32-year-old Long Island woman was busted after egging on two 12-year-old girls to fight outside an elementary school and then beating up a child who was watching nearby.
Daphne Melin, of Shirley, encouraged the juvenile dust-up outside William Floyd Elementary School on Sunday afternoon, Suffolk County cops said.
Some reports suggested one of the girls was Melin's daughter but cops said they were unable to confirm the exact relationship.
As the two girls fought, Melin allegedly cheered them on and made no effort to stop the fisticuffs, police said.
When the brawl wound down, Melin was just getting warmed up - cursing and spitting at a young girl who was watching and then knocking her down and kicking and kneeing her to the neck and head, cops said.
Investigators arrested Melin late Monday and charged her with attempted assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
She was released on bail and will be arraigned on Dec. 1, authorities said.
A relative who answered the phone at a number listed in Melin's name declined to comment.-------------------------------
