A high school student was body slammed by a school security officer in Richmond, Va.

The incident happened at Huguenot High School after a fight between students.

Andre "A.J." Nious said he was punched in the face by another student when the guard lifted him up and slammed him to the ground.

A.J. and the other student involved were both suspended.

A.J.'s mother said she warned school administrators about kids bullying her son back in February.

She has filed charges against the security officer involved and is calling for his resignation.

The school system is investigating the incident.
