VANCE COUNTY, N.C.
The video taken at Vance County Middle School and obtained by local news outlets shows the sheriff’s deputy walking alongside the child, only described as being under the age of 12, before the deputy suddenly lifts the boy up and throws him to the ground.
The deputy then grabs the boy’s limp body off the floor and throws him down again before pulling the child back onto his feet and dragging him down the hall.
The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is investigating.
The deputy is on paid leave.
