Dad joins teenage daughter’s fight

A dad in Williamsburg allegedly brought his daughter to a fight — and then jumped into the brawl.

Alexandra Pineiro, 16, told ABC News she was with friends Thursday when another teen she had previously fought with approached with her dad. Pineiro claims the dad encouraged the teens to fight, then joined in.

“Her father was trying to break it up in the beginning, and then he started hitting me, started choking me, pulling my hair, pushing me over the fence, I guess trying to let her win,” said Pineiro, “and then my friends jumped in to defend me, and he started swinging at everyone else.”

A cell phone video captured some of the fight and was posted on Facebook. According to Gothamist, the NYPD says the suspect, described at over 6 feet tall and almost 300 pounds, is wanted for felony assault.
