GLEN ST. MARY, Fla. -- Brittany Deyoung broke down in tears when she talked about it.

"I go to get off the bus and she just attacks me. She pounded my head into the concrete," she said. "She was just like shaking me on the ground. And I got knots all on my head."

The 16-year-old student at Baker County High School said things got physical after school Thursday between her and the girl she says has been bullying her.

She said, "She was harassing me at school over and over again. I don't even really know her."

Brittany Deyoung's mom, Sheina Deyoung, took her daughter to the emergency room.

"After the fight she started throwing up blood," said the concerned mother.

She snapped photos of Brittany Deyoung's injuries: There were scratches and bruises; she said her daughter's earrings were torn from her ears.

"They say she had a severe concussion," Sheina Deyoung said.

Police were called.  Brittany Deyoung's 16-year-old attacker now faces misdemeanor battery charges. But Action News learned the attacker was back at school today. Brittany Deyoung wasn't.

"I can't go to school because I'm afraid I'm gonna get bullied again," she said.

Action News made several calls to the principal's office and school district to find out what was being done to protect students. The only response we got was an email: "The safety and welfare of our students in the Baker County School District is of the utmost importance."

It went on to say, "The school district has completed its investigation of the occurrence and the appropriate actions have been taken."

District officials would not be more specific.

The victim's family now has a restraining order against the alleged bully. They'll be going to court next month.

This girl is a damn liar, she has tried to fight my daughter many times and has repeatedly lied on her. she needs to deal with the fact that she can not just get away with her behavior. She got exactly what she deserved, hopefully she learned her less.

-nativejax- you are absolutely right. 2 wrongs don't make a right, however this is a situation that deserves a deep looking in to. You have 2 separate incidences both where this young lady claims to be a victim. Is it fair that she is allowed to say I'm a victim if she is the bully being called out? Who is the actual victim? A deeper look into the situation is needed, making sure of the facts. All our children deserve to be protected.

I know she falsely accused the boy of rape, her actions the following morning prove it. Violence never solve problems. Unfortunately the rumors of this girl bulling others has made her a target. Britney needs serious mental theray. I'm not saying that to be mean, I'm saying it out of concern for the girl

Some people are so damn judgemental. She needs to take the beating she deserves? Ok how about you take a beating for all the dumb stupid mean crap you have said. Assault is assault no matter how it started! And yes she has tattoos. Who gives a flying f? Just cause her mother's parenting style doesn't fit your standards of how a child should be raised doesn't mean she is a horrible mother. I know these two personally and are WONDERFUL people. And who said she is crying wolf? You don't know what actually happened you weren't there so just shut the hell up about her accusations of being raped. Sounds like you might be one of those parents who don't care if their child beats up one of their peers. I was bullied and threatened when I went to school and never turned violent towards the other people because it is WRONG! Smdh

I would like to know why the school system goes overboard with little things and talks big about protecting students...then don't do the 'right thing' when bulling is known by everyone except school employees? It would appear they are either playing favorites, ignoring the obvious, too lazy to take action, or just plain not getting involved and practicing the law and rules of conduct. Perhaps the school board does not support teachers in doing the right thing. The STATE needs to take total charge of all education of FLORIDAS EDUCATION SYSTEM. Education is not the responsibility of federal government. Perhaps schools need to teach students more about our Constitution, Amendments, and 'Just" laws and less about sex education. Our your and many adults don't even understand showing 'respect' for others, authority, laws, and themselves.
