The video, which contains obscene language and violent imagery, shows Hernandez, a mother of a student in Corpus Christi, allegedly striking Piñon’s daughter repeatedly at Miller High School. 

According to a Facebook update from Piñon, the confrontation between Hernandez and her daughter was started over a rumor that a male student had spread about her. Piñon’s daughter was staying after school at the time for volleyball practice, Piñon wrote on Facebook

“This is great news.. And I feel the man and her entourage should have been charged for instigating the fight as well.. I’m just hoping for justice,” Piñon told Chron.com Tuesday afternoon over Facebook.
