SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — A Sioux City mom was arrested for assaulting students outside of West High School mid-October, police say.

Officers assigned as school resource officers responded to a report of a fight outside of West High School on Oct. 12 at 3:15 p.m., according to the Sioux City Police Department. School officials and officers found several people were involved in a fight.

The police reviewed available video and spoke to several witnesses. Police said that their investigation found that a student got out of a car her mother, Jaleisa Hayes, 32, of Sioux City, was driving and then started assaulting another student. The altercation grew to involve Hayes and her three daughters assaulting three other students.

Court documents provide more details into the alleged assault of students by a mother outside West High School.

Hayes had called West High School on October 12 to say her daughter wouldn’t attend school due to being ill, according to the documents. Later that day, she drove her three daughters to the school so that one of them could fight a classmate. Her daughter stepped out of the vehicle and started arguing with the student before punching them. The two started fighting and Hayes’ other two children got involved. Hayes then jumped in and allegedly kicked the student and hit another.

After being separated, the other two students had scratches, abrasions, bruising, and swelling.

Documents state Hayes “acted in a manner that created a substantial risk of harm to her daughters when she drove them to the school to fight.” In addition, Hayes’ daughter has continued to send threatening messages on social media to the student she punched.

A warrant was obtained for the Hayes arrest. On Nov. 4, she was arrested on warrants for rioting, two counts of serious assault, and three counts of child endangerment. Her three juvenile daughters were also referred to juvenile courts for the same charges.
