Students at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, SC, staged a brief walkout in support of school resource officer Ben Fields, the Richland County sheriff's deputy fired after he was videotaped slamming and dragging a noncompliant student out of a desk earlier this week, reports WISTV.

Hundreds of students walked out of class around 10 a.m. and into the school's atrium before school administrators returned the students to class.

Video and photos from the incident captured by students show many of them saying "Free Fields" or wearing T-shirts that say "#BringBackFields."
