Police say the mother of a 16-year-old boy stood by with a video camera while her son covered his bare chest in nail polish remover and lit himself on fire to make a “Fire Challenge” Facebook video.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department charged Janie Lachelle Talley, 41, on Aug. 6 for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, after social services were alerted to the viral video.
Police released the following statement regarding the July 29 stunt:
The mother of the victim was present and aware of what her son doing and facilitated the recording.
Talley’s son apparently suffered only minor burns to his chest and neck.
