OVERLEA, Md. – Baltimore County police say two girls are in custody after an officer used pepper spray to break up a fight at Overlea High School.
Police spokeswoman Susan Hunt says the fight between the two girls started around 7:45 a.m. Monday and an officer used pepper spray to break up the fight.
Hunt says the two girls were taken into custody and five other students are complaining of discomfort from exposure to the pepper spray.
She says county schools usually have one or two school resource officers on campus, but additional officers are at the school Monday to make sure everything stays calm.
