The mother of a boy who was reportedly relentlessly bullied at school allegedly made a video issuing threats to warn the children involved in tormenting her child that she would harm them if they did not stop.

Gainesville resident Cirea Oliver is a 29-year-old mother with an 11-year-old son.

Recently, Oliver reported that her son has been the target of bullies at Gainesville Middle School where he attends. The concerned mother reportedly approached the school about the situation, but they did not appear to take care of the matter in a way that relieved Oliver’s son of the alleged harassment.

Authorities reported that they responded to an incident on Monday involving a plastic toy gun employed as a makeshift weapon in an alleged attack after a Florida dog owner used it against a man whose canine was bitten by his dog.

Near 8 p.m. on March 12 31-year-old Thomas Phillips from Gainesville was strolling with his unleashed dog in an area of the Lake Crossing Apartments complex designated as a dog run. 33-year-old Matthew Hester was out for a walk with his dog in the same area, but his dog was contained on a leash.

Phillips’ unrestrained pet allegedly ran from his side advancing on Hester’s dog, biting and attacking him. When Hester reportedly attempted to break up the dogs his pup found a way to wriggle free from the collar and leash it was wearing. He then began using the apparatus as a belt to swing at the attacking dog.
