A Palisades Charter High School cheerleading coach has been suspended and administrators are investigating claims that cheerleaders were forced to fight to settle differences, KTLA reports.
Junior Cimone Holloway said she was being bullied by other cheerleaders and was at odds with one teammate over a boy. The coach reportedly told the students to settle their differences physically.
The student says the coach asked the whole squad to "pinky swear" not to tell anyone outside the team about the fighting.
Holloway told her mother, Tonya Humes, who reportedly asked the coach what happened and was told her daugther fell during a stunt. However, a video of the fight surfaced and police did not take a report. Humes told KTLA she's hired lawyers to seek justice.
Calls made Wednesday morning to Pali High Principal Pamela Mcgee were not immediately returned.
