Investigators say the adult moved to pin the girl after she hit a male student in the head several times. They also said the girl hit the campus monitor several times before more help arrived.

Investigators say at no time was the girl’s airways restricted by the campus monitor and prosecutors decided there was not enough evidence to file criminal charges.
