PHOENIX — A police officer working security at a Phoenix high school was kicked in the head when he tried to break up a fight Tuesday.
Video recorded by a student shows a crowd gather to watch as staff try to break up brawls that broke out in the Maya High School cafeteria, according to My Fox Houston.
When the off-duty officer stepped in to make an arrest, he was kicked and knocked to the ground. He then deployed pepper spray.
Five students — two of whom are adults — were handcuffed and arrested. Police said they will file charges.
