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.
