    SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- Video of a Prior Lake student running onto the basketball floor and getting tackled by a Shakopee High School administrator is making rounds on YouTube. The fan was tackled by an activities director after grabbing the ball toward the end of the game and taking shots.

    I just watched the video... WOW!!! What a absolute abuse of power by this "activities" director. This is horrible. I honestly hope this man is suspended from his position. Dont get me wrong, the kid who ran on the court was out of line. But the fact a grown man, who is under "power" in the school felt he needed to tackle the kid to the ground in that manner is disgusting. He completely overreacted. I will be contacting the school district on this and expressing my view point, I as a parent highly suggest any other parent to do the same. People like this man who over reacte in this way to a student has no place in a school.

    Maybe the kid repeatedly called him "dude" in school.

    I don't think that the staff person was out of line in doing this. It was not a very violent take down and he was just doing his job. As a teacher and athletics supervisor I probably would've done the same thing. The supervisor's are there to protect the players, coaches and officials and that needs to be done regardless of the severity of what's going on.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
