(Newser) – Two female middle school teachers face misdemeanor charges after getting into a profanity-laden brawl in front of students. The fight was the result of a love triangle between them and a male teacher at the Georgia school, police tell Fox 5 News, and began after one of the women found a love letter sent to the other on Facebook.

The women have been charged with disorderly conduct, and one of them with simple assault as well. Their status at the school is unclear, though some parents are calling for their heads. The fight comes the same week one of the district’s school board members is set to go on trial for attacking her live-in boyfriend.
