Three Sacramento-area high school students were arrested after a principal was slammed to the floor during a melee that was recorded on video and posted to social media.

Two 15-year-olds and a 13-year-old face serious charges, including making threats to students and law enforcement and battery on school staff, in connection with Monday’s cafeteria brawl at Florin High School, said Sacramento County sheriff's Sgt. Tony Turnbull.

Video of the fracas was later posted to YouTube and Facebook.

The video shows students yelling and running while others frantically climb onto tables to watch a fight between students. At some point during the fight, a student wrestled with Principal Don Ross and violently shoved him to the floor. Ross got back to his feet and restrained the student with the help of other adults.
