A school police officer at San Jacinto High School in California was attacked by students on Friday.
The officer was trying to break up a fight after school when he was swarmed by students.
A substitute teacher became involved when he saw a student grab the officer’s baton.
Some of the students also appear to be trying to help the officer after he was attacked.
The mother of the boy who took the officer’s baton defended him, saying he was trying to break up the original fight when the officer drew the baton on him. She said she would expect any young person to do the same.
