Florida cop fired after viral video shows him grabbing a middle school child by her headscarf

A Florida school resource deputy was fired after he was captured on viral videos grabbing a middle school child by her headscarf during an altercation.

Police were responding to a call about students fighting at an apartment complex about a block away from the Westridge Middle School in Orlando.

He grabbed a middle school child by the head, with her headscarf.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina excoriated the officer for his actions in a statement on Friday to the media.

"To me it looked like he lost control and his actions were totally inappropriate," he said, adding that he was "extremely upset, disappointed and outraged" at the officer's actions.
