Hamilton police have charged a 38-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy after a fight in a high school parking lot.

They say the incident happened on Tuesday afternoon at St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School.

Police allege the woman, the mother of a student at the school, had come to the building carrying an expandable baton.

They allege the mother was upset about a previous altercation between her child and the other teen.

Police say the mother got into a verbal fight with the teen, who was allegedly holding a knife, but officers arrived before anyone was injured.

Both the woman and the teen are charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
