Round Rock, Texas: A 14 year old high school student says a school officer used excessive force when he grabbed the teen by the throat after the student and another boy were involved in a scuffle.
A cellphone video taken by a third student shows the officer placing his hands around sophomore Gyasi Hughes’ throat and taking Hughes to the ground.
Another cop cover-up.
Round Rock police said in a statement that a school administrator was unable to stop the two students from fighting and was forced to have police intervene. The officers were trying to calm Hughes and walk him to another part of the building, but the teen tried to circumvent the officers and continue the fight with the other student, according to the statement.
