Once again, a video of officer misconduct is going viral. A female student in a high school classroom in Columbia, South Carolina refused to leave the classroom after she reportedly became disorderly. A school security officer was brought in to escort her out of the class. Instead, he threw her out of her chair and onto the floor while her horrified classmates watched.
A video recorded by a student at the Spring Valley High School in Columbia showed sheriff’s deputy Ben Fields asking a student to get out of her seat. He stands over her desk and tells the student, “either you’re coming with me or I’ll make you.” Without giving her time to get up, he grabs her and flips her over, slamming her onto the ground.
The school’s resource officer then drags her out of her chair and tossed her across the room, as students watched speechlessly. The deputy pinned the senior student down as he puts her hands behind her back. He tells another student, “I’ll put you in jail next.” The high school senior was not injured and released to her parents, cops said.
Students said the officer has had a history of roughing up students.
The officer flipped her over and then tossed her across the room during the arrest, the video showed.
