NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX5) -

A school administrator who was captured on video slamming a freshman student to the ground is still employed by the Clark County School District as police continue to investigate the incident.

The girl's mother says police informed her the man who hurt her daughter is an assistant principal named Chris Isle. 

Melinda Malone, a spokesperson for CCSD, said she could not confirm or deny the name of the person in the video, but she did confirm that Isle has been assigned to work in an administrative office pending the completion of a police investigation.

"I wouldn't say he's banned from working with kids," she said, "but kids aren't typically in an administrative office."



Lucenda Randle, the girl's mother, tells FOX5 she was asked to forward any videos she has seen to police investigators so they could send it to prosecutors with the District Attorney's office. At this point, nobody has been charged with a crime.

The video shows an argument between Randle's daughter and a senior girl before an administrator broke up the fight by throwing the freshman student to the ground and then jumping on top of her. It's difficult to tell exactly what caused the administrator to step in, as the person operating the cellphone camera panned away from the argument for a few seconds.

Randle said Isle was way out of line and did more harm than good. According to emergency room paperwork, her daughter was diagnosed with a concussion, a sprained shoulder and a strained back.

"That is child abuse! CPS would have came and picked me up if that would've been me on the video throwing my daughter like that," she said. "CPS would have been at my door. The officer would have arrested me, and then I would have been on the news. But guess what? It's not me on the news. It's the administrator on the news."

When FOX5 asked Randle why the two girls were in an argument, she said it was because one day her daughter accidentally bumped into the other girl and caused her to drop her cellphone, which broke. She says, ever since that day, her daughter had been physically bullied on multiple occasions.

Now lawyers on both sides are taking a close look at the video. Randle said she is in the process of talking to multiple attorneys who want to take her case. At this point, she says she's waiting for an apology.

"They haven't reached out to me. They haven't called me," she said. "It's very scary because you never know what can happen later on in life... We wouldn't be sitting here looking at a child at home with injuries. We would be planning a funeral."

Aside from confirming Isle's employment status, CCSD has refused to comment about the incident for more than a week.

"You know what? I just want CCSD to know that y'all need to be a better leadership for the community," said Randle.
