Deputies arrested a teen boy during a Friday night fight at the Victor Valley High School football game in which law enforcement used Pepper Balls to calm the unruly crowd.
A deputy was punched trying to break up the brawl, and a teen girl was injured in the incident and was transported to a hospital, sheriff's officials said.
An online video shows the girl being forcefully slammed to the ground by what appeared to be a uniformed deputy after she attacked the other officer and tried to take his pepper gun away from him.
Priscilla Jeffers reported that her daughter, Faith, suffered traumatic injuries to her head and spine and was hospitalized during the encounter with a deputy.
Jeffers told the Daily Press on Saturday that her daughter has a long recovery ahead of her.
Faith’s mother told KTLA she plans to take legal action against the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. The sheriff’s department, however, claims the deputy was the victim during the melee.
