Video Proves Officers Did Not Slam Student Into Lockers

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The mother of a Riverside Middle School student has accused two school security officers of slamming her daughter against a locker; however, school officials say they have footage from a security camera to dispute the claim.

The alleged incident occurred last week after the female student, whose name was not released, voluntarily offered her cell phone video footage of a fight that took place at a nearby elementary school. When the security authorities told her the phone would be used for evidence, she tried to grab it back, reports.
