What kind of mother bites her daughter’s breast during an argument?
Well, according to allegations in an Indian River County Sheriff’s report obtained by The Smoking Gun, Joy Young (pictured), that’s who.
Young, 38, of Vero Beach, Fla., and her 16-year-old daughter, Diamond LaCrystal Simmons, were arguing over the girl’s two-month-old baby last month. According to Simmons, Young was trying to collect social security for her newborn baby. It was an alleged attempt that did not sit too well with Simmons and an argument ensued.

In any case, the the verbal argument reportedly became physical, with Young allegedly scratching Simmons several times and then biting her on the right breast in the nipple area, causing the skin to tear and also bleed.”
When a cop responded to the altercation, he reported that Simmons “has visible scratches on her face and also had a large blood stain on her shirt” from where her mother allegedly bit her.
Young was booked into jail and charged with child abuse; she was later released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled for an Aug. 20 arraignment in Circuit Court.
