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.
