This is what happens when a beef starts on Instagram but finishes on the streets. Atlanta woman Myzelle Chantel Armstrong was sentenced to four years in prison and 36 years of probation Wednesday for helping to throw hot oil on a woman during a fight last February. Her sentencing was based on the fact that the violent act was pre-meditated.
The fight between Armstrong, 19, and her friends with another group of women started on Instagram over photos and messages, but as it escalated everyone agreed to meet up at a location to fight. Armstrong and her crew brought weapons, including baseball bats and cooking pots filled with scorching oil.
Armstrong held the victim’s car door open with a bat, while one of her co-defendants threw the liquid on the victim sitting in the car. She was burned so severely the woman needed to undergo skin grafting after second-degree burns on her leg.
Co-defendant Zawadi Clark of Marietta pleaded guilty as the trial began and was sentenced to three years in prison and 37 on probation.
