RALEIGH, NC -

Eight people were arrested for a water balloon prank Thursday outside Enloe High School in Raleigh. Seven of those arrested were students, one was a parent at the school to pick up his two daughters.

Kevin Hines said saw Raleigh police officers acting aggressively towards a student they were arresting when he drove up to the school.

"Being lifted up by the neck and taken down hard," Hines said.

Hines said he tried to intervene was but was told he didn't know the whole story. Hines complied and said he wished to speak to the principal.

"You're just trying to cause trouble. Get out," Hines said an officer told him.

Hines said he then attempted to talk to a lieutenant but was approached by two officers and threatening with a TASER. Hines said he told the officers that wasn't necessary.

"They arrested me on grounds of trespassing," Hines said. "So, they put cuffs on me and carried me away."

Hines first court appearance is schedule for July. He said he has the support of the school and some teachers who witnessed the incident.

Renee McCoy, a representative of Wake County Public Schools, said they rely on the training of the Raleigh Police Department in these situations. "We leave those decisions up to Raleigh PD," McCoy said.

Raleigh police will not release a statement on the incident until the case report is finished
