Two Houston, Texas school district police officers pinned a 15-year-old girl face down on the floor on Tuesday because she didn’t want to relinquish her cell phone to an assistant principal.
The girl, sophomore Ixel Perez, weighs 70 pounds, according to her brother. She attends Sam Houston High School.
In a video of the incident, one of the cops who tackled the girl can be seen ramming his knee into the side of her head, reports local CBS affiliate KHOU.
The incident happened after the teacher in Perez’s reading class busted her using a cell phone in class.
