Cayce police release footage of alleged assault of student by assistant principal | #students | #parents


COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – The Cayce Police Department issued a statement Tuesday and released footage of an alleged assault involving a Brookland Cayce High School assistant principal.

On May 25, 2022, Leon Brunson was involved in an incident with a student that led to charges of assault. The video investigators released showed Brunson slammed a student to the ground after breaking up a fight.

Investigators said the students had left the building and were walking away at the time Brunson grabbed one. In a statement the department said,

“The Cayce Police Department has a zero-tolerance policy for violence in our schools. The charge of Unlawful Conduct Towards a Child stems from Brunson not protecting the mental, physical health or safety of a student.”

“Body slamming a child is not the “action that is reasonable to stop a fight,” as the School Administration has stated they determined in their investigation. Nor did it occur during the fight.”

A separate video was released by investigators from a similar incident in March 2020 where Brunson was seen using a similar throw on a child.

Investigators wrote, “As we do under normal investigative procedures, Brunson was afforded the opportunity to provide a voluntary statement. He declined.”

Brunson is charged with Assault in the 3rd Degree and Unlawful Conduct Towards a Child.
