A middle school student recorded in a video posted to social media striking a classmate at a Beaufort County school will be charged in the incident, police have confirmed.

The video, recorded at Lady’s Island Middle School in Beaufort, shows a sixth-grade student punching and threatening another sixth-grader.


The student can be heard using profanity towards the girl and threatening to hurt her if she gets up, then telling her when she is allowed to get up and leave the room.


The victim’s uncle said Friday afternoon he saw the video for the first time Thursday and couldn’t believe what he was watching.
