School authorities in KenoshaWisconsin, Wisconsin, released surveillance video showing an off-duty police officer pressing his knee to the neck of a 12-year-old girl to restrain her during a lunchtime altercation in a school cafeteria.
Unified School District B Kenosha The modified video of the March 4th fight was posted on Friday. The photo shows Sean Guicho, Kenosha’s police officer, interfering in the fight and then arguing with the minor, before falling to the ground and hitting his head on a table.
Guizhou, who was a security guard at the school, then pressed the girl’s head to the ground and put his knee on her neck for about half a minute before handcuffing her and taking her out of the cafeteria.
The girl’s father, Jeryl Perez, has requested criminal charges against Guizhou for using a form of restraint that has been prohibited to law enforcement officers in Wisconsin since last year.
Perez commented that her daughter is undergoing treatment and is visiting a neurologist to treat her injuries.
The school district initially placed Guetschow on paid leave. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Gucho quit his part-time job as a school security guard on Tuesday.
In his resignation letter, Getschow complained that the school district did not support him and that the incident placed a heavy burden on his family.
The district told the newspaper it would not provide further details and did not respond to messages left by The Associated Press on Saturday.
Kenosa police said in a statement that Jichu remains an employee of the department.
“We are continuing our investigation, paying close attention to the full scope of the incident,” the statement read. We don’t have any other updates at the moment.
