A Florida mother has been arrested after police said she attacked her daughter's rival at the teen's high school in an act of vengeance.

Ernstlatta LaFrance, 30, allegedly showed up to Carol City Senior High School during dismissal, where cops said she approached a teenager before snatching the girl's phone from her hand.

LaFrance is accused of then hitting the girl several times and taking the phone with her when she left, according to a police report.

Investigators believe the bad blood began when LaFrance's daughter was reportedly involved in a fight with a group of girls at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition.

But the feud didn't end at the fair, cops say it continued after LaFrance left Carol City High.

According to the police report, the victim subsequently showed up at LaFrance's home to retrieve her phone. That's when LaFrance took an ax and destroyed the teen's car, cops said.

Police say LaFrance also broke the girl's middle finger.

On Tuesday, LaFrance reportedly agreed to speak to police. According to police, she admitted to getting in a fight with the teen and told police that her girlfriend had fired the shots.

What's more, police say LaFrance posted video of her confrontation to Facebook as a warning to other teens to not mess with her daughter.

"The defendant also bragged on Facebook telling the victim that suffering two black eyes was not the end and she would use a gun," an officer wrote.
