Shovel Girl Video

Cops Conduct Criminal Investigation

It's all fun and games until someone gets hit in the head with a shovel ... but TMZ has learned police are investigating the infamous "shovel girl" video ... and assault charges now loom.

By now you've seen the video ... two girls are fighting when one grabs a shovel and throws it at the other ... nailing her in the back of the head as she hightails it out.

Now a rep for the Miami County Sheriff's office in Ohio tells TMZ ... they've assigned a deputy to investigate after they were contacted by the girls' high school. Maj. Steve Lord tells TMZ ... the girl who threw the shovel could be charged with assault or disorderly conduct.

We think we know what Exhibit A would be ...

This is funny lol and thy 2nd girl that got hit with a shovel it didn't look that serious but still she was on private property and really it's her own fault to be honest and the 2nd should have just called the cops. Wtf are stupid little teenage girls doing anyways they should be home doing chores getting a job!!! And looks like try all got cell-phones I bet they are not even paying it, they should be helping their parents pay rent if they got one! Lol

There's nothing funny about two teens fighting, if I heard correctly, over a boy? Defend yourself when necessary ladies, but damn, learn to act LIKE A LADY!

They were both fighting and mouthing off, but only one hit the other with a shovel.....while she was leaving. If she would have controlled her temper, she would have had a trespassing action against the girl, but now it's full on assault. This little bitch needs to be charged with criminal assault. Only in America do half-wits sucker throw a shovel from behind someone's back. All you know how to do in America is fight, and you don't even do that very well.

The first girl was walking to her own house (albeit to supposedly get a BB gun), the second girl walked up from behind her in an aggressive manner, the first girl, rightfully feeling a bit threatened, responded by protecting herself.

The aggressive one got hit in the head with a shovel, fell, and started crying about going to the hospital. Is that what everyone else saw, too?

Out of hand? Sure, but the pink shirt girl was told to leave the property and acted aggressively toward the girl on whose property she was trespassing. Did she deserve to get hit with a shovel? I don't know because I didn't see the whole video which reportedly shows the girl in the pink shirt physically assaulting the other girl. If that's the case then the other girl's fear would have naturally been escalated and she would have more of a leg to stand on in court when she plead self-defense. Might be a tough sell, though, considering the girl had already turned and started to trot out of there. If the shovel was already in mid-flight when she started running, there might be a chance at getting away with it.

I believe both should be arrested and serve time . For one the chick who was bullying on shovel girls home property, so she was harrassin her and physically attacking her and taunting her in her own home where she was not welcomed . And the shovel was extreme and she should be greatful she didnt kill her or give brain damage, this is where the parents should be involved and why didnt anyone stop the bully at the beginning when there was clearly other people who were involved , In actually, they all should be responsible and serve time. Not just he shovel girl.

The girl asked her to leave... she refused .. went after her and the girl in bkack defended herself. I dont condone violence. But self defense if necessary is a must.

If they're going to charge that young lady for throwing the shovel, the other young lady should be charged also. Before the shovel came into play she was punching her in her face with a closed fist and kicking her. She grabbed the shovel to protect herself. Good for her ass for being a damn bully!

What does this have to do with Willow Smith, Donald Sterling, or Porsha Williams?
