I'm not saying teen girls don't lie, of course they do because it's fun to lie. That said, if you read the article there are some pretty clear indications she wasn't.

Unless the girl coerced the witness, drugged her mother and stepfather and then hypnotized them in to believing they had beat her, and then had rough sex with her 24 year old boyfriend (because, let's be frank, no guy under the age of 24 really knows how to do rough sex right), I think it's obvious she was telling the truth.
And if the above scenario is true, she isn't just a lying teenager. She's the goddamn Catwoman.
I am not saying she is lying about the entire thing, but many elements of the story do seem very off.
I will outright say this is impossible, it is claimed she fought for 2 hours wearing medieval armour, yeah no.
According to police, the teen was forced her to dress in armor and fight Fremon Seay with a wooden sword for two hours.
I've fought in armour quite often, hell I fought in armour today and I can clearly say that going 5 minutes straight in Armour is quite the challenge.
Today for example, sparing for 2 minute rounds with a minute in between for 15 minutes (so 5 rounds) was enough for me and my partner to find it hard to lift our swords or move in the stuff.
They are claiming that a 16 year old girl dueled a grown man, in armour for 2 hours? Not going to happen, ever, she wouldn't have collapsed from exhaustion, she would be DEAD (after 15 minutes might I add).
The mother was the witness, she is being charged for assault for not stepping in and stopping it.
when there was a witness who verified the girl's claims
I am not saying that she is lying about the entire sequence of events, I do believe that the parents were batshit and I do believe that she got into a duel, what I do not believe is the claims that the duel went for 2 hours and also I find the beating with the branch beforehand also... strange I mean, who the hell says "Go find me a branch so I can beat you with it before I medieval duel you"? It could have happened, but I just find that weird and out of place, but who knows, the parents are batshit.
Also after reading a more indepth article on this story, the girl didn't just come home after some party, she was arrested at a crack house and he had to come bail her out hence the duel when they returned home. Also the mother didn't step in so because the fight would "finally wipe the smirk from the daughters face."
With the full info, it seems more like a case of a huge problem child likely with drug problems and the parents finally snapped after she got arrested.
What is interesting though is that most articles are conveniently leaving the full story out, I guess "Innocent little angel 16 year old girl gets beaten half to death for sneaking out to party" sells more newspapers than "Teenage girl gets beaten by parents after being arrested at crack house"
Oh also now I realized that the branches thing was being beaten by something called a switch, which is apparently a hickory cane thing used to cane children, so the branch thing now seems totally in line with the rest of the story, my bad from before.
(still do not believe the 2 hour duel though)

Maybe you and your friends just have shitty cardio. If we are going by anecdotal accounts of the human body's capacity, I've known 16 year old girls who could squat 300 lb and bench 200. I've known 16 year old girls that were more than capable of playing football with guys 3x their size and practiced every day with them, including doing 2 a days during the summer.

As for what the girl was doing at the party, I really don't give a ****. To me this is nothing more than an amusing anecdote about a bunch of nutjobs who decided medieval fuckery was a suitable punishment for their 16 year old girl. If she was caught at a crack house, I blame no one but the parents. This fact coupled with their unusual punishment practices only lends credence to them being **** parents.
In the event you are not trolling, I really don't see why you care so much if a high school girl did or did not have to fight her stepfather in a mock medieval duel. Is it because you don't like thinking that a 16 year old girl could fight longer than you? It's okay to be embarrassed about not having great cardio. Cardio's never been my strong suit. Consider adding or upping your running regimen. Maybe then you will have the tenacity to fight 16 year old swordswomen.
Just about the fighting for 2 hours bit, it may be possible that they stopped every few minutes, took off their helmets got water, and started up again. If his endurance was equal or greater than hers, and if he was stronger and more skilled than her as well, I could see the fight going on two hours that way, and it being a punishment.
Your ASSuming they went full on for two hours, they may have fought for two hours and just not gone full out. I have practiced with a sword and shield for over two hours it's not impossible just unlikely.
