Tyler ISD Issues Latest Update on Tuesday Night's Fights

TISD says Thursday in two separate and unrelated fights, pepper spray was used.

District officials say outside, one female student was sprayed by campus security to defuse an altercation she was involved in. She was treated at the scene.

During a fight inside, one male student was pepper sprayed by TISD police, after the student failed to obey their commands.

"[The officer] gave a loud verbal command to stop. One student did stop. The second student did not and looked like he was about to hit the other student. And then our officer used all the necessary means to stop that and used the pepper spray," says TISD spokeswoman Angela Jenkins.

No injuries were reporter from that fight.

TISD says charges may be filed in this on-going investigation, which include disruption of school activities and disorderly conduct.
