A 17-year-old arrested for battery last week at Mountain Park Park told police she has “anger management problems.”
That seemed obvious based on the police report from a May 21 incident at the park’s skatepark.
According to a Gwinnett County Police Department report, the teen attacked a 16-year-old girl with seemingly little provocation.

The victim told police that she was sitting at the picnic-table area near the skatepark late in the afternoon on May 21, when she heard the suspect, who specifics of that conversation was not reported.
When the suspect hung up the phone, she walked directly to the victim and told her to “remove your sunglasses,” after which she punched her several times in the face, then kicked her in the head after she had fallen to the ground.
Witnesses, who corroborated the account, broke up the assault and the suspect left the scene. One witness said that the suspect punched the girl's face "in rapid succession."
An ambulance was called to look at the girl’s injuries (bruises to her head), but she refused to be taken to the hospital.
Police later found the suspect to ask her what happened.
“She told me she has anger management problems,” Officer B.E. Davidson wrote in the incident report. The suspect said she did ask the victim to remove her sunglasses and that she punched her twice in the face and kicked her once in the back of the head. “The suspect said to me that she was upset with the victim because of alleged phone and text message harassment.”
The suspect said she did not save any proof on her cell phone that she was being harassed.
The teen was arrested for battery and taken to the Gwinnett County jail.
