Student Pepper Sprayed After Fight At J.H. Rose

There's been another fight at J.H. Rose High School that ended with a student being pepper sprayed.

The latest one happened this afternoon, around the same time that one happened last Friday.

In today's fight three students have been arrested by Greenville police. One of those students was pepper sprayed after he picked up a trash can for a second time and the school resource officer wasn't sure the student's intentions. The school says that student had already hit another student with that trash can.

Unlike last week's fight, this time when officers blew their whistles the students watching the fight moved away. The school system says no other students were affected by the pepper spray.

It's the third time in two weeks where school resource officers have pepper sprayed students at a Pitt County school.
