Hollywood's biggest celebrities took to Twitter to bash the arrest of a South Carolina high school student, who was forcibly thrown onto the grown by a police officer after allegedly refusing to hand over her phone to a teacher.The arrest occurred Monday at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina. One of the student's classmates, who videotaped the arrest, told USA Today the girl had her phone out while working on her computer. The classmate said the teacher asked for her phone, and when the student refused, an administrator was called into the room to take the girl to the discipline office. The classmate explained, "She really didn't do anything wrong. She said that she had took her phone out, but it was only for a quick second." Deputy Ben Fields then was called to help remove the student from teh class, and the video shows what happened next. Fields has been placed on administrative leave, pending the results of an investigation. Since then, Hollywood has spoken out against the Spring Valley High School arrest using the hashtag #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh.
