An eyewitness said the girl who was thrown to the ground was later involved, but was trying to break things up. Police have not confirmed that information.
Rolesville mayor Frank Eagles said the officer was placed on administrative leave. He says the officer has been assigned to the school since it opened in 2013. Eagles said all officers were given body cameras in August.
Eagles told ABC11 the Rolesville Chief of Police will talk about the incident after a regularly scheduled town meeting Tuesday night.
Lisa Luten, a spokesperson for Wake County Public Schools, said they are aware of the situation.
"We are in the process of working with Rolesville Police Department to gather all of the details around this incident," Luten said.
After being thrown to the ground, the officer led the girl off with her arms behind her back.
Wake County Public Schools responded on Twitter to the student who posted the video. They said they are working to investigate.
