The police officer caught on video slamming a teenage girl out of her desk in South Carolina will be relieved of duty,
according to NBC News. Richland County Senior Deputy Ben Fields, 34,
was suspended without pay Monday as the sheriff’s department and federal
officials carry out investigations of the incident.
The video exploded on social media this week. Students say the girl
in question was quietly playing on her phone when the school resource
officer was called in. Another girl who says she was just standing up
for her classmate was also arrested.
