South Carolina Police Officer who threw teenage girl across classroom walks free.

A South Carolina police officer was fired in October last year, after videos emerged showing him yanking a high school student out of her chair and throwing her across a classroom because she refused to hand in her mobile phone.

The Solicitor’s Office, however, has decided that the officer will not be facing any criminal charges.

Officer won't be charged with police brutality. The Court has resolved.

At the time of his firing, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said both the teacher and the administrator felt everything Senior Deputy Fields did was correct and that he didn’t use excessive force.

However, after examining the evidence, the Sheriff changed his mind.
