STOCKTON, Calif. (KGTV) -- A school fight in Stockton came to an unexpected end after a Marine tackled a pair of students to the ground.

The Marine was on campus Wednesday to help with military recruitment when he saw the students fighting and sprinted toward them.

Video shows the Marine tackling the students, who were throwing punches.

Some parents say the Marine used unnecessary force while others say his actions were justified.

The Marine has been reassigned to office duties and will no longer be around students, the Marine Corps says.
