MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A video that appears to show a Shelby County principal getting rough with a student has surfaced online.
"That's uncalled for," a parent said. "You could've cause bodily injury or harm, you just don't know."
The students who sent the video to WREG, say that's their principal who could be seen putting both hands on a student and throwing him down on the floor.
Students tell us, the video shows a gang fight breaking out during school hours at Northeast Prep Academy back in March. The video raises the question should the principal have stepped in. Some say he should have handled it differently.
Ray Austin says there's no explanation for the actions, even if adrenaline was high.
"It's too much, maybe he should have called security or authorities about that."
In the video, it's not clear if a school resource officers was already present. But the image of a student being thrown to the side raises concerns.
"He wouldn't want anyone to do this to his child or his grandchild, so it's very sad," Austin said.
And with growing concern, Shelby County Schools tells WREG they're looking into it.
"That's so wrong. That was wrong. He shouldn't have done that. He's a principal," Jessie James said
Austin says the district needs to do something to keep it from happening again.
"There's another way that they should have been trained to handle that situation," he said.
We reached out to the principal and are waiting to hear back.
SCS released a statement to WREG saying:
The situation seen on video was self-reported and fully investigated when it occurred at Northeast Prep Academy in March of the 2016-17 school year. We recognize the action taken to deescalate the situation may seem excessive; however, the safety of all students is always top priority, and this employee took immediate steps to prevent potential harm by a student who was making threats to staff and students. Following the investigation, all students found to be responsible for their involvement in the altercation were disciplined in accordance with Board policy.

Surströmming, or Swedish sour herring, is one of the most pungent foods in the world. The fermented fish is stored for months marinading in its own bacteria, and is so smelly that locals advise opening the can underwater.
A group of friends in Devon, southwest England, took it upon themselves to attempt to sample the "delicacy", with one girl, Klee G, accepting the challenge of eating the entire can.
However, she starts heaving immediately as the can is opened.
Klee G manages to make it partway through the can before being physically sick, but still persists until everything is finished.
