A POLICE OFFICER BODY SLAMMED A STUDENT
Another incident in a high school saw a police officer fired, but he won't be facing charges of assault on a student.
Ben Fields, a former South Carolina sheriff’s deputy was fired after he threw a 16-year-old female student across a classroom.
The school resource officer was called into a math class when one of the students proved unruly. After exchanging a few words with her, Fields walked over, placed her in a choke hold, then body slammed her onto the floor.
Clips filmed by the students and posted online showed Fields telling the girl to leave her seat or he would forcibly remove her. He then wrapped his forearm around her neck, flipped her and the desk backward onto the floor, tossed her toward the front of the room and handcuffed her.
The video sparked universal outrage and resulted in Fields being fired from the Sheriff's Department.
