A parent from Round Rock, Texas has decided to press charges against at least one police officer, who he says used excessive force in dealing with his 14-year-old son.

On the afternoon of October 8, the boy who is a student at Round Rock High School had an argument with his fellow student over a pair of football goggles.

The school administrator decided the matter was serious and she needed the police to help her.

Round Rock Police School Resource Officers decided attended the scene and tried to break up the fight.

The cops started to talk to the student to calm him down and manage the situation.

They also took him to another part of the school building , according to a press release by the local police he kept trying to get past the officers and go to the person he was having an argument with.

One of the students who had gathered around pulled out his phone and captured the event.

The African-American student is seen talking to two policemen; from the video it does not seem like the boy was aggressive.

However, moments into the footage one of the police officers lightly pushes the boy then abruptly reaches out for his neck, turns him around and pins him to the floor.

The two officers restrain him as he tries to get up.

This entire episode plays out in full view of the school and students can be heard gasping in the video.

A female voice is also heard crying “how can they do that?”.

After a minute and 25 seconds the student who was filming the incident was asked to switch his cell phone off by school staff.
