Victoria Lindsay Cheerleader Beating (Video)

Meet Victoria Lindsay, the cheerleader who allegedly took a nasty beating from her friends, all to make a YouTube video. You can view the video here and see her photos.

Her name as well as the tape was released by the sheriff’s department, presumably to educate the public about this cheerleader beating and protect this from happening in your neighborhood. The names of all of the alleged juvenile attackers have also been printed in the media.

As an update, the latest news is that Dr. Phil is in hot water because his staff bailed out one of the accused teenagers from prison for $33,000. The bail was supposedly in exchange for Mercades Nichols agreeing to an exclusive interview on the Dr. Phil show. Ridiculous. The show has backtracked in the face of negative publicity.

As a biography, she is a 16-year old cheerleader who attends Mulberry High School in Lakeland, Florida. Although Lindsay is an honor student, she reportedly has some growing up problems. She was staying at the grandmother’s house of a friend rather than her parents at the time of the attack. Our comment section includes remarks by some girlfriends who know Ms. Lindsay.

Victoria’s cheerleader pals apparently decided it would be cool to post a violent YouTube video, so six of the girls supposedly cornered her in a friend’s house while two boys stood watch outside the house.

It appears from the video that they tried to coax Victoria Lindsay into a brawl so that the video would look like two girls fighting and nobody would know who started it. But that plan backfired because Victoria did not fight back. She covered her head with her hands while she was verbally assaulted and slowly beaten more aggressively as the altercation continued.

Her injuries include a concussion, lacerations, loss of hearing and blurry vision. She has still not recovered completely in the local hospital. She endured the attack for 35-minutes

These high school girls are probably going to have hell to pay. All six plus the boys have been arrested for various charges including aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and kidnapping. Despite how this looks, please remember that the girls are innocent until proven guilty.

Victoria’s parents have spoken out in a YouTube video you can watch here.

This is also my plug for martial arts. Although it would not have helped against six girls she clearly could have kicked the main instigator’s butt and it might have made the other girls think twice.

Women should not feel so helpless in a situation like this, which could have been a lot worse in a public park at night. Victoria Lindsay is thin and should have some tools available to defend herself in any situation. So go ask your mom to sign you up for a martial arts class today.

Unfortunately Victoria Lindsay’s alleged attackers addresses and phone numbers have been copied around on blogs and forums as well. We consider this an invasion of privacy and have removed at least two comments with phone numbers in our article just as fast as we can. In fact, some of the data that is being printed on the internet is wrong and has ended up tormenting at least once unrelated family. We had the eight names and removed them because of this reason, and we removed references to a blog purporting to be Mercedes Nichols blog because it may be faked.

The video is below with photos.

    It is really sad because the victim(s) have very few if any rights or options. The criminals get free aggressive legal assistance. This happened to my brother and the people who did this laughed about it too. There was a tape but it got “lost”. The police and ADA were and are quite unhelpful eventhough aggravated assault is a felony and my brother faces permanent brain damage. We had to hire outside help at a cost to our family to the tune of $26,000 just to get the perpetrators arrested and charged and then to force the ADA to show up at preliminary hearing. If he hadn’t I know that the people who did this would have walked on lesser charges because the attornies for the accused grilled my brother for 2 hours and if the ADA had not shown up the only representation my brother would have had would have been the police officer who has limited or no legal expertise. The family should access, I hope they have a lot of money because justice is expensive.

    I can’t watch this without think about my 14 year old daughter and knowing that it could have easily been her. This could be anyone’s daughter. I think these girls should all be flogged in public instead of given free legal assistance, not to mention be ordered to pay thousands in restitution to the girl they attacked, including all medical bills. I don’t care if if took years to do it. And I wouldn’t stop there. YouTube should be sued for allowing such trash and MySpace would be a thing of the past. How pathetic!!! What a generation we’re raising!

    dont blame the websites that have this stuff- they are just a conduit. but the weak ass bitches (go ahead and defend them but then you better tell me why it took all of them to take on one girl) should be taken out in the street and let everyone take a few shots on them. and their boyfriends too- they have just as much a part in this as the girls do. the cowardice and stupidty of these idiots just amazes me.

    All of these girl committed AWFUL BRUTAL CRIMES!!!!! NO MATTER WHAT Victoria said or did to them NOTHING EXCUSES THIS-NOTHING!!!! CHRISTINA GARCIA-Mercades Nichols Mother is A SAD EXCUSE FOR A MOTHER-HAVING the NERVE to give her comments on why they did what they did. She said Lindsay enbarrassed them and called them “slutty” then she went on to say -how badly could she be hurt if she was on Myspace so soon after the attack. IGNORANT!!!!SHE OUGHT TO BE CHARGED AS WELL – FOR A BEING A HORRIBLE MOTHER TO ACTUALLY HAVE THE NERVE TO TRY TO DEFEND ANYTHING THEY DID. THE ONLY THING MS.IGNORANT CHRISTINA GARCIA SHOULD BE DOING IS APOLOGIZING!!!! NOTHING THIS GIRL EVER COULD HAVE POSSIBLY SAID ABOUT THEM OR TO THEM EVER JUSTIFIES THIS CRIME. NOTHING!!!! I AM OUTRAGED AND I’M JUST A CITIZEN LIVING IN CHICAGO READING THESE HEADLINES TODAY. I TRULY WISH THEM ALL THE WORST PAIN AND SUFFERING IMAGINABLE AND THEY OUGHT TO BE LOCKED UP FOR A LONG TIME AND ANY PARENT WHO SHARES THE IGNORANT ATTITUTE AS MERCADES NICHOLS MOTHER CHRISTINA GARCIA – OUGHT TO DO TIME AS WELL.
