VIDEO: Officer Single-Handedly Arrests Three High-Schoolers Attacking Him

A Glennville police officer wrestled three suspects to the ground following an after-school brawl.

Glennville, GA A Glennville police officer single-handedly detained three unruly teenage suspects during an altercation outside a Glennville school on Aug. 23 (videos below).

At least two of the teens assaulted the officer during the encounter.

The incident began after two students got off of a bus outside Glennville Elementary School, WTOC reported.

In a series of videos posted to Facebook by user Carlos Coley, two males were seen arguing near a white van.

One of the males, who was wearing a white backpack, repeatedly tried to walk away from the second male, who followed after him and pushed him when while his back was turned.

A woman stepped between them, and appeared to quell the argument as the teen with the white backpack got into the backseat of her vehicle.

But the second male continued to move towards him, then stood in the doorway and shoved the van door. The male with the white backpack suddenly jumped back out to confront him.

The verbal altercation quickly escalated into a physical fight just before the video ended.

When the Glennville police officer arrived in the area, he confronted one suspect involved in the altercation, Glennville Police Captain Wes Kicklighter told Blue Lives Matter.

The others engaged themselves, and it escalated from there, Capt. Kicklighter explained.

A second video showed the lone officer as he escorted two males onto a grassy area.

One of the individuals, who appeared to be the same teen seen throwing punches in the earlier video, then reared back and kicked the officer in the leg, the video showed.

The officer tossed both suspects to the ground, and wrestled them to a position beneath him in order to maintain control.

As the officer struggled to subdue the teens, a girl in a purple shirt walked into the frame and kicked the officer in the left hip.

When the officer ignored her, she grabbed him by the arm, and began pulling his hand away from the two individuals he was holding down.

In one swift movement, the officer snapped his attention to the girl and grabbed her by the wrist, but she was able to pull away.

Undeterred, she stepped back towards the melee a moment later. The officer raised his hand towards her to stop her advance, and she swatted him away while taking a brief step backwards.

As she argued with the officer, the girl reached out her hand and pointed towards him, giving the officer just the leverage he needed.

The officer quickly reached out and grabbed the girl by the arm, and pulled her down on top of the other suspects.

He kept all three of the juveniles pinned to the ground until backup officers arrived, WTOC reported.

City officials refused to provide further details of the incident due to the suspects ages, but said they were looking into the circumstances of the altercation, WTOC reported.

We can't release any information about them other than to say they're juveniles," City Attorney Hugh McCullough told WTOC. The matter has been turned over to the department of juvenile justice for handling. The officer was interfered with and that constitutes obstruction of an officer."

The city was also investigating whether the officers actions during the arrests were appropriate, McCullough added.

What does the city need to investigate? The girl clearly interfered by kicking the officer and grabbing him. These thugs/thugetts need to do some time in Juvie and have a record. The parents need to be held accountable for what their kids do. Ankle bracelets should be the new jewelry they carry and have curfews by 8 pm to keep their butts home. They screw up let the parents do some time. There is absolutely NO consequences anymore...........

What is the City investigating? Exactly how awesome this officer is? I am not sure what unit of measurement they are going to use, but my money is on different weights of brass balls.

Great video's..not close. But well done Officer. She will have a few charges for sure. The lack of respect these kids show these days is unbelievable. If they attack police, what do they do to their parent(s)?

Cheers for the officer for taking down that ignorant female who assaulted him along with the arrest of the two teen boys. Teen boys fighting is as common as apple pie but recently females are sticking their loud mouths and busybody hands into these fights which tend to escalate the ongoing fight.

Oh crap if the departments ADMN is investigating this they are going to try to screw that officer. If the NAACP gets involved they will say the film wasaltured and the white kid was the aggressor. Just watch

Those agitators were aggressively attacking the white boy and the mother of the white boy and the police officer had to get involved to stop the black thugs! The girl kicking and stying to stop the cop from doing his job was also a thug! Good for the officer in taking them all down! Hope they rot in jail.

Entitled thugs. This officer did a great job of subduing these three little criminals.

it was a schoolyard fight. In my day, a long time ago, it wasn't a big thing as long as no weapons were used (usually they weren't) and no one was seriously hurt. So different now, if someone looks at someone sideways they get suspended, kicked out and/or jailed. but there are so many more cowards now, then there were. Have to use any kind of weapon to settle any kind of fight, or fight 10 against 1, so many cowards now, no matter what their age. want to go back to my day and age. lol

has anyone of us bothered to contact the mayor or chief of police and stood by our LEOS, just wondering if all were fb keyboardists or actually help.

All these many hate-filled attacks and crimes on police, began and escalated with one con man named Barack Obama, who hates our America, but loves our money, even at the sports level...........NFL, who suddenly one Muslim American NFL player making millions of dollars, began a mockery that went nation wide to demean our flag and our National Anthem. What a farce these deranged ghetto ''playas' are. Time to ship them out and send them to where they can feel more comfortable and think they can get away with all their thugery there, where the government of Africa won't tolerate it, like we do here in the U.S.

When I saw portrait mode in the videos I just knew the idiot filming would be Maxine Water's grandson. This crap is worse than watching the Blair Witch Project.

You know, every time these underage f*cktards do this stuff, the parents should be fined a substantial amount of money and forced to attend parenting classes! Unless, of course, theyre locked up themselves. Which is probably the case.

The laws need to changed so that when anyone, any age attacks a police officer their full names and ages should be disclosed. These thugs are protected because they "are just kids"! Bullshiat. They are criminals who have no regard for any kind of authority and should be labeled as such. Let it ruin their futures. They won't ever become decent tax paying citizens.

Just because these hood rats are underage doesn't mean that they can't do extensive harm. They must be treated as adult criminals when they break the law and/or resist arrest.
