VIDEO: Outrage After Cop Throws Down Teen Girl, Then Sheriff Releases Bodycam

After mass criticism over a cell phone video, the Pasco County sheriff has released bodycam video with the truth.

Pasco County, FL - A viral video generated outrage after a school resource officer was recorded on a cell phone throwing a teen girl to the ground (video below).

Now Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco has released the bodycam video which showed the whole incident, and praised the deputy for his actions.

The incident started on Tuesday when the school resource officer for Sunlake High School, Deputy Rich Stackon, was called to disruptive a student who refused to leave the cafeteria, according to Bay News 9.

A witness told Bay News 9 that the girl was walking up and down the room yelling.

The deputy arrived and asked the student to speak with him outside, and she refused to cooperate.

"He was doing everything possible to de-escalate the situation and get her out of that cafeteria as quickly as possible," Sheriff Nocco said.

That's when the bodycam shows that the student raised her fist, either to pull away or to strike the deputy - something the cell phone video didn't show.

Deputy Stackton grabbed her and took her to the ground.

"I think his conduct was good. I think his conduct was above and beyond," Sheriff Nocco said. "He says, 'Look, I did everything I could do. I didn't want to take her, I didn't want to pepper spray her.'"

Well, I guess the bodycam footage exonerated the officer. Those bodycams can work both ways. (Cops caught on their own camera planting evidence, lol) The cellphone footage told a different narrative. Glad the truth came out.

I agree. Spoiled little brat. I'm sorry, but I can't buy the bad parenting thing. I grew up in a time when both parents had to work and we were mostly on our own. Even at night, we would have the run of the neighborhood. We didn't need a curfew. We knew when it was time to go home. We were by no means "good" kids, but we had a certain respect for our parents and rather simple rules.

Marxshit, the truth would have come out without any video evidence. There was a world without cell phones and body cams and the police had no problem getting to the truth.

that girl deserved everything she got. He issued lawful commands she choose to ignore them. She then raised her fist in the air, regardless of her intentions he could see it as a sign of force and stopped the threat and detained her.

A lot of teenagers have ZERO respect for ANY authority. "Oh so you're gonna touch me?" She wants to play the victim? Guess what little girl, you just got SERVED! You're parents should be beating your ass for your disrespect to others, or is this how you treat them as well? I can only imagine your pity story to your crap attorney!

While I agree that the cop was justified in the takedown and cuffing her he should have not used the bad language. He is a role model at the school and his language was setting a bad example
