Fellow Police Officer Comes To The Aid Of Sheriff Deputy Ben Fields, Doesn't Offer Much

Footage went viral and made headlines when it Sheriff's Deputy Ben Fields flipped a desk, with a female student in it, before dragging her across the classroom. The person who filmed the incident, Niya Kenny, 18, was taken into custody and held on $1,000 bond for "disturbing schools" and standing up for her classmate.

Kenny says she was detained for speaking up after the officer went through his attack. Local authorities in Richland have asked the FBI and the US Department of Justice to investigate the Spring Valley High School incident. In response to claims of racism, Sheriff Leon Lott stated that Fields had been dating an African-American woman for "quite some time."

Of the violent encounter, Kenny said, "I was crying, like literally screaming like a baby. I was screaming ‘what the f, what f, is this really happening? I know this girl don’t got nobody and I couldn’t believe this was happening. I have never seen nothing like that in my life, a man use that much force on a little girl."

Fields has a history of acting roughly with students. A group called the Richland Two Black Parents Association called for a federal investigation of Monday's confrontation. The group said the footage has “revealed what many African American parents have experienced in this district for a very long time.”

In 2013, Fields was named as a defendant in a federal lawsuit that claimed he 'unfairly and recklessly targets African-American students with allegations of gang membership and criminal gang activity.'
