Richland County Senior Deputy Ben Fields has been terminated from his position as a resource officer at Spring Valley High in Columbia, SC after throwing a teenager from her desk for using a cell phone in class.
The South Carolina deputy who addressed reporters Tuesday afternoon doesn't believe resource officer Ben Fields is racist because of his romantic relationship with a Black woman.
Soon after the video was uploaded and gained national attention, Fields was placed on administrative leave. On Tuesday afternoon, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced that Fields was suspended without pay.
What has been revealed is that Ben Fields has been sued twice in federal court, with a one case going to jury trial at the top of next year.
