Campus Arrest Investigated

Campus Arrest Investigated
Arrest scuffle at South Dakota State University investigated
The Associated Press - September 12, 2017

BROOKINGS, S.D. - South Dakota State University and a state agency say they're investigating an allegation of excessive force used by a campus police officer making an arrest.

Melissa Mentele says her two daughters were stopped by an officer while walking through campus with friends late Saturday. Mentele says the officer dislocated the wrist of her younger daughter as he wrestled her to the ground.

The Argus Leader says she was arrested on a charge of resisting arrest. The older daughter tried to intervene and was charged with obstruction.

Police or the university won't say why the girls were stopped by the officer. University spokesman Mike Lockrem says the school began looking into the complaint immediately. South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation is also reviewing the case.
