TERREBONNE PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet says that his office received a complaint Thursday about a “racially motivated” video being shared on social media that was filmed at a local high school.

The video appears to show a white student at Vanderbilt Catholic High School in Houma throwing cotton balls at a Black student seated in the cafeteria and then hitting him with a belt.

Police say detectives met with the parents of the victim, who have already spoken with school administrators, and that they are currently investigating the incident.
