Body camera video of deputy's takedown of student different than report

Body camera video released by the Volusia County Sheriff's Office of the incident involving a deputy who's seen slamming a 16-year-old student to the floor.
The incident states, “The student turned towards Deputy Moore balled up his fists (took) an aggressive fighting stance and said, ‘Don't touch me.’ Deputy Moore escorted the student to the ground and secured him with handcuffs.”
“There's no aggression towards the officer. He did say something about ‘Don’t touch me’ and did create distance between him and the officer, but I don't see where he was moving towards the officer on an aggressive way or balling up his fists. What I see on the video is not consistent with the ,”
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office released a statement "The school security video and VCSO body worn camera video, while imperfect, provides some added context to Friday's events. A portion of the incident was not recorded as it appears the deputy's body worn camera and or cord was briefly knocked loose as he took one of the defendants into custody.”
