The woman involved in last month’s deadly Mexico kidnapping is reportedly back in custody today.
Latavia Washington and three friends were abducted while crossing into the country for her to undergo a medical procedure. Since returning home, it looks like she is getting in trouble for a very different reason. Washington, 34, is back home in South Carolina with her family. Her daughter recently got into an altercation with another child.
The girl was removed from the incident but is said to have been escorted back with her mother and other siblings, who instigated a secondary brawl. The whole thing went down at an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Spivey Street. Washington is said to have dragged her daughter back to finish the fight and was armed.
A man tried to break up the altercation but was struck by Washington’s mother in the face. Washington is then said to have pulled a pistol from her purse and begun waving it around. The whole thing was caught on video and a warrant was issued for Washington and her mother. She was arrested Friday and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was released Sunday on a $10,000 bond.
On social media, people chimed in on the weird turn of events. “Oh, she hasn’t learned to sit still yet,” said one person. Another brought up speculation around Washington’s time in Mexico, saying, “Starting to believe more and more they went to Mexico for drugs.”
