WATCH: La Mesa High School Student Slammed by Police Officer

Video of a handcuffed 17-year-old student at Helix Charter High School in La Mesa, California, being slammed down to the ground by a police officer has led to protests and outrage. You can watch the video above.
The video shows an officer grabbing the 17-year-old girl, who is handcuffed, by the arm and throwing her down onto concrete. He then rolls her over and lifts her up as she lays motionless on the ground. Authorities say she suffered minor abrasions and was evaluated by paramedics, who determined she did not need treatment.

The incident happened about 1:35 p.m. on Friday, January 19, the La Mesa Police Department said in a press release. The girl, who has not been named, was charged with refusing to obey a lawful order to leave school grounds and resisting arrest.
Police said it began about 1:20 p.m. when Helix High School staff called for the school resource officer to remove a student. According to police, the girl “was on suspended status and non-compliant with staff directions to leave the campus. The officer contacted the student and attempted to gain her voluntary compliance to leave, but she refused. The officer then ordered the student to exit the school grounds, and she again refused, in violation of 626.8(a)(1) of the California Penal Code.”
According to the police press release, “The officer arrested and placed the student in handcuffs and began to walk her towards the school office. As they were walking, the student became non-compliant on two separate occasions and made an attempt to free herself by pulling away from the officer. To prevent the student from escaping, the officer forced the student to the ground. After the student agreed to quit resisting and attempting to escape, the officer assisted her up and walked her to his patrol vehicle. She was transported to the La Mesa Police Department.”
