The video shows an elementary school principal in the town of Superior pushing a table into a 7-year-old special needs student across the floor, and then pinning that student against the wall.
Superior Police got a call on January 21 concerning an assault at Kennedy Elementary School. The report alleged that the student had been assaulted by the principal.
"The initial complaint was that the principal had slammed the student's head into a table. That led us to investigate and a subsequent investigation led us to this video," said Chief Mark Nipp. "I'll let the video speak for itself, the viewers can tell us whether they think want their children treated in such a manner."
The head slamming incident was not caught on video.
Some adults in Superior were stunned by the video. "All kids are something else sometimes, but you're the adult, so be better than that than losing your temper like a kid," said Daniella Romero.
Chief Nipp says that the principal may face charges of child abuse and aggravated assault.
