Per a report from regional outlet WESH, Ashley Ruffin was arrested and taken to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility following allegations made by “a female motorist” who had approached a Flagler County Sheriff’s Office resource deputy for Indian Trails Middle School on Sept. 8.
The motorist allegedly told the deputy her son had been jumped by “two male juveniles” at the complex, with the mother of one individual further alleged to have participated in the assault by having “grabbed her son by the hair and arm” while the two children hit him.
The alleged victim later reportedly told the school resource deputy he believes the mother of one of the involved kids grabbed him and held him during the incident. In a press release, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office alleged that Ruffin’s husband “became irate” when they tried to make contact regarding the allegations. According to the office’s account of what transpired, the husband told authorities his wife would not be allowed to speak with said authorities, nor would his son.
