JONESBORO, GA (CBS46) -

Tamica Graves and her sister, Secquita Graves, are facing several misdemeanor charges related to a fight at a Clayton County high school.

Tamica Graves was at Charles Drew High School for a conference with administrators over a dispute her daughter was having with another student. That student's parent was also at the conference.

According to school police, the meeting grew heated, and as Tamica Graves left the meeting, she encouraged students to fight.

She is accused of jumping into the fight herself, along side her sister Secquita Graves. They are both charged with misdemeanor simple battery.

According to court documents, the Graves sisters are accused of punching students in the face and pulling their hair.

In total, 11 students and the two adults were taken away from the school by police.

Tamica Graves bond was set at $10,000. Secquita Graves bond was set at $7,500.

Both women told the judge they were unsure if they could afford the bond. Tamica Graves claimed she is unemployed.
