FORESTVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- Did a school security officer in Prince George's go too far in breaking up a fight between two students?
For one family, the answer is yes.
Mel Robinson says her niece, a sophomore at Suitland High School, was involved in a fight with another student on Friday, October 23.
She was suspended for five days because of it. Robinson says she, and her niece's father, are fine with the punishment - but after seeing a cell phone video, Robinson says they are uncomfortable with the way the school's security officer broke up the fight.
"[My niece] called me and she was like, 'Auntie, did you see the video of what the security officer at my school did to me?' And I'm like no send it to me."
When she saw it, Robinson said was angry.
