Watch: Police Officer Attempting an Arrest Is Kneed, Kicked at South Florida High School

An altercation at a Homestead, FL high school caught on camera shows a student kneeing and kicking a police officer in the face.

All of this is occurring while that officer is attempting to apprehend another student.

According to South Florida’s Local10.com, Shardae Yvonne Pittman, 18, is identified as the student that allegedly assaulted the officer.

Pittman was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and interfering at an educational institution. She was held at Miami-Dade County’s Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on a $5,500 bond, the report said.

“It is a shame that while this officer was attempting to break up a fight and maintain a safe learning environment, this adult student acted in a cowardly way rather than fall in line with MDCPS values,” Miami-Dade Schools Police Chief Edwin Lopez said of the incident on Twitter.
