GA school officials ID 3 students in pepper spraying

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. — Three Douglas County High School students are facing possible disciplinary action after school officials say they took turns releasing pepper spray from a can inside the school.

Douglasville police spokesman Maj. G. Graff says 75 to 100 students complained about itchy eyes and noses after the spray was set off Wednesday morning.

Douglasville Police Capt. J.R. Davidson tells the Douglas County Sentinel that authorities reviewed surveillance video to determine who was responsible. Douglas County Principal Tim Scott said tips from students assisted in confirming their identities.

Scott said the students would face a tribunal through the Board of Education and that any punishment by the school system would be determined using board policy.
