[WATCH] Campus Police Officer Accused of Excessive Force at South Dakota State University

She was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest, Mentele wrote. Her other daughter was charged with obstruction, she said, for attempting to intervene when her sister was pulled to the ground.

Mentele went to Brookings to pick up the girls and took photos of her daughter’s injuries in the office of the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.

The photos were attached to Mentele’s post, which had been shared more than 2,000 times by Monday morning.

Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring confirmed that the family had come to the office early Sunday morning and took photos, but said no report was taken.

“We obviously know about it, but it wasn’t reported,” Sebring said.

Mentele declined to comment in detail on the incident further, pending advice from an attorney.

She did offer thanks to the officers who came to her daughters’ aid on Saturday, however, and said she hopes the officer involved gets help.

“We hope this officer does some soul-searching and gets some counseling,” Mentele said.
