A shocking video of a student being physically assaulted, has been making it’s rounds for the last 24 hours. Deputy Ben Fields was caught on video, slamming a student to the ground in a South Carolina classroom, while students and a teacher were present.
The sheriff’s deputy has been pulled from Spring Valley High School in Columbia where he worked as a resource officer after the video went viral.
The New York Daily News reports,
The imposing officer, who is a powerlifter in his free time, 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, and her desk, onto the ground.
The veteran 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 female student was not injured and was later released to her parents, cops said.
