AKRON, O.H. (WJW)— An on-duty police officer in Akron, Ohio allegedly broke a 13-year-old’s arm after using excessive force after a confrontation at her middle school.
The confrontation happened in October.
A security camera captured the student being shoved across a hallway against some lockers by the officer.
“The officer attacks her and pushes her up against a locker, puts her arm behind her back using the police technique that he was trained to do and he lifts her up off the floor. That’s when her arm breaks,” said the girl’s family attorney.
The officer has been removed from the school district pending further investigation.
