A South Carolina school district banned a school resource officer pending an investigation after a video surfaced Monday showing him tossing a student across a classroom floor.
The video has since gone viral.
The incident, captured on cellphones of at least two students, occurred at Spring Valley High School in Columbia. School officials and sheriff’s deputies said they are investigating what happened.
Richland County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Lt. Curtis Wilson says Sheriff Leon Lott has asked the FBI and U.S, Department of Justice to investigate the incident.
