A school fight video has gone viral, but not for the fight itself.
After two girls at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha got into a cafeteria fight, an off-duty police officer who was moonlighting as a security guard at the school pulled them apart and fell to the ground, hitting his head in the process.
When he fell, he was holding on to one of the girls, who he then rolled over so that she was facedown and knelt down on the back of her neck.
Video of Kenosha middle school fight appears to show an off-duty Kenosha police officer subdue a student by placing his knee on her neck.

The 12-year-old girl's father claims that she suffered from a neck sprain and head injury, but added that it could have been worse.
"That man treated my daughter like she was a felon. Like she was an armed felon," he told WISN." She's 12 years old. No weapon in her hand. There was no reason for that force through his knee on her neck."
"It doesn't take that much to subdue a 12-year-old, you're a professional," the father continued. "When I saw that video, that's all I seen. That's all I could think about was George Floyd."
"Just imagine if he stayed on her neck a few more seconds or a minute, and he would have killed my daughter. This cannot keep happening," he added.
He said his daughter had been arrested on a juvenile disorderly conduct charge, and since released. He said she is not going back to the school.
Neither, it would seem, is the officer, who was placed on paid leave shortly afterward.
"The Kenosha Unified School District is aware of an incident that occurred between two students at Lincoln Middle School on Friday, March 4, 2022, that required intervention by KUSD staff, as well as assistance from the Kenosha Police Department," a district spokesperson told Fox6.
"This part-time KUSD employee, who was hired as an off-duty Kenosha police officer, is currently on a paid leave from the district. We appreciate your patience as we work with the Kenosha Police Department to investigate the facts surrounding this incident."
The officer has not however, for now, been disciplined by his main employer, although Kenosha Police Department said it is investigating.
"On Friday, March 4, 2022 a lunchtime fight between two students occurred in the cafeteria at Lincoln Middle School. Kenosha Unified School District (K.U.S.D.) employees who were monitoring the cafeteria intervened to try and stop the physical fight. One staff member was injured during the incident," Kenosha Police Department said in a statement.
They continued, "One of the employees involved was a Kenosha Police Department (K.P.D.) officer who was working off duty for K.U.S.D. This off-duty employment is permitted by K.P.D. The officer is a 37-year-old male with four years of service at K.P.D."
The statement added, "K.P.D. has watched the video clip and has seen the photo which has been widely shared on social media over the weekend. We are keenly aware of the significant sensitivity surrounding the photo. K.P.D., together with K.U.S.D. is investigating the incident in its entirety while being cautious not to make conclusions based off of a small piece of information shared on social media. Both agencies will look to our respective policies and procedures for guidance in this circumstance."
"It is the highest priority of those officers who work in our schools to provide a safe and secure learning environment for our children and staff," K.P.D. concluded.
