ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Two parents in metro Atlanta have been accused of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after a video was posted on YouTube of their teenage daughter fighting in a street in Tucker.

The original video posted on YouTube went viral, and many parents watched the fight unfold in shock.

CBS Atlanta News' Jennifer Banks spoke with the victim Quinnaya Durden, 14, and her mother Quateka Durden.

Durden's mother said the fight lasted a little over two minutes, but Quinnaya said it felt like it went on forever.

According to Durden, the other teen's parents Timothy Taylor and Shequita Cade drove their daughter to fight Quinnaya at the bus stop on Post Oak Drive.

"Her parents followed my bus," said Quinnaya.

As soon as Quinnaya got off the bus the fight started and didn't end until a neighbor broke it up.

In the video, you can hear Taylor coaching his daughter in the fight. "You know where to hit her," he said.

Quateka Durden said both girls were suspended, but doesn't think it was fair. She said Quinnaya was punished because she defended herself.

Luckily, Durden's mother said the school has been very helpful since the incident.

Banks asked Quinnaya what other students should do if they are bullied or attacked like she was.

Quinnaya said they should use the resources at school, like counselors or resource officers. There are people at school who can help resolve a problem.
