A violent video of a Sheriff-Deputy slamming a female student to the ground and seemingly knocking her unconscious is trending.
There are serious questions about the level of force used, as a young woman, allegedly a student, with her hands behind her back is slammed to the ground. There's a loud bang as the girl's head is slammed to the concrete, and she appears to be immediately knocked out cold.
It's unclear what led up to the deputy's involvement, but the incident is under investigation.
The person who posted the video said,
"This girl was already separated and under control by one of the faculty members when the officer came out of nowhere, picked her up and body slammed her headfirst on to the concert."
A rep for the Sheriff's Department says the officer was a School Resource Officer who was in the process of trying to stop the student from fighting another student.
"Our office is in the initial stages of our investigation. We are collecting video, witness statements, and relevant information related to the incident."
