DETROIT-A camera captured the moment an assistant principal at a Detroit high school slammed a 14-year-old boy on the ground last October before a resource officer allegedly broke the boy’s jaw.
Elijah Wynn said he tried to go back inside West Side Academy High School on McKinley Street 40 minutes after dismissal to get his wallet. He was met by a school administrator at the door.
After the principal went back inside the building, a school resource officer walked outside. He allegedly punched Wynn in the face, breaking his jaw.
The camera outside the building didn’t catch the punch, but a camera inside the building did. Wynn’s attorney, Jonathan Marko, however, said those seconds were deleted.
