A juvenile now known as "shovel girl," charged in a May 4 fight during which she was hit in the head with a shovel by another girl, admitted to a charge of disorderly conduct Wednesday in Miami County Juvenile Court.
Miranda Fugate, who now lives in Montgomery County, and Emily Olinger, of Tipp City, were charged with minor misdemeanors of disorderly conduct by the sheriff's office. Both are 14.
A viral video showing a girl being struck with a shovel gained national attention. The girls had been arguing over a boy.
After Fugate admitted the charge, the case was transferred to Montgomery County Juvenile Court for disposition.
Olinger made an initial court appearance earlier and denied the allegations. Another hearing is scheduled for this month.
