LA MESA, Calif. -- Police in La Mesa have identified the school resource officer seen slamming a student to the ground in video captured by students as Scott Wulfing.
Authorities say Wulfing has been placed on administrative duty until the investigation into the use of force is complete. Police said Wulfing won't be working on any school campuses while the investigation is underway.
Students marched two miles from Helix Charter High School to the La Mesa Police Department in protest of actions by a school resource officer Wednesday.
Students also staged a walk-out Monday due to the treatment of the suspended 17-year-old student.
