Video: Student Body Slams Cop on Campus
Wild video appears to a show a high school student in Florida body-slamming a police officer to the ground.
The 15-year-old from St. Cloud High School was arrested Thursday for allegedly assaulting the cop, who was trying to separate two 14-year-old students who had been fighting, according to local reports.
He was charged with battery of a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence, Fox 35 Orlando reported.
The footage shows the teen boy walk up to the school police officer, grab him by the neck, pick him up and throw him on the ground.
“We will never tolerate behavior that targets our officers and will hold those accountable at the highest levels,” St. Cloud Police Chief Douglas Goerke said, according to the local station.
“What occurred to [the officer] was despicable and should never have happened.”
The name of the student who was arrested has not been released.
“Multiple law enforcement officers responded, and at least one student has been arrested. A video of the incident is being reviewed for discipline purposes,” Dana Schafer, the public information officer for Osceola County Public Schools, told Click Orlando.
