Fox35 Orlando reports:

A St. Cloud High School student was arrested on Thursday for allegedly picking up a police officer and slamming him to the ground during a fight, police said.

According to the St. Cloud Police Department, an officer was separating two students from fighting each other, when another student who was not involved in the fight walked up to the officer and grabbed him by the neck.

The student then pulled the officer away from the fight and the officer attempted to control the student “with the least amount of force possible,” police said. The student picked the officer up and slammed him to the ground.
