SMYRNA — Three women were left with second- and third-degree burns after being doused with hot cooking oil following an argument over a posting on a social media website, police say.

Facing charges in the Feb. 5 incident are Myzelle Chantel Armstrong, 17, of Smyrna, Zawadi Athenaiis Clark, 20, of Marietta and Mykhal Antoinette Tait, 20, of Atlanta.

They are charged with four counts each of felony battery with intent to disfigure after allegedly dousing Ashley Hardy, Jasmine Ragland and Shatericka Barrino with hot oil, causing second- and third-degree burns on their legs and arms.

A fourth victim, Stori Brown, was not burned.

Armstrong and Tait also threatened the women with a baseball bat, police say.

According to the warrant, all seven women met at an apartment complex in Smyrna, “regarding some Instagram messages earlier in the day.”

Hardy and Ragland said they saw the defendants carrying hot liquid in a pot and a baseball bat, at which point they jumped back in their car.

The defendants are accused of prying the car door open with the baseball bat and throwing the pot of hot oil inside.

Armstrong and Clark made bail, which was set at $40,000 each.

Tait is still in Cobb County jail on a $40,000 bond.

I'm so tired of the judgmental comments. These are young "stupid" GiRLS still babies who are probably somewhat insecure and fighting over dumb ****. So anything too harsh is unnecessary. You too were once young too maybe not crazy enough to fight over WORDS through the INTERNET - but still. Stock acting like saints, these are young girls who have little to no real life experience.

This is so dumb. I know one of these girls and I would have never thought she would do this. Only if they cared more about school instead of popularity...

This is really a result of sad people with nothing better to do with their lives than insult each other on "social media" and then seek revenge for the insult. Remember, the next time you hear of a city or county leader talking about furloughs or reductions in our police forces, many more of these people are out there.

They must be the hard working immigrants that we keep hearing about. Seriously, we have enough trouble with the low life's born on this soil, no need to import more.
