Viral video shows Black N.C. college student being led out of class in handcuffs after a dispute with her professor

Viral video of North Carolina police taking a Black college student out of class in handcuffs as classmates looked on in horror raised questions about whether law enforcement intervention was necessary and outraged some, as it unfolded at a historically Black institution.

The incident, which occurred Wednesday in a classroom at Winston-Salem State University after a dispute between the student and her professor, was captured by multiple students on their cellphones. At least one video on TikTok had gained more than 4 million views by late Thursday afternoon.
