Fight at Sumner High School leads to student exposure to MACE

A scuffle at Sumner High School ends with a dozen people treated for exposure to MACE.

Authorities say a fight broke out among a group of boys in the cafeteria. The school security guards quickly suppressed the fight by spraying the boys with MACE.

As the security guards were spraying the fighting students, overspray got on other people surrounding the fight.

Three students were taken to the hospital for treatment, while the rest recovered on school grounds.

St. Louis Schools spokesman Patrick Wallace says the district is investigating the incident, but early indication is that the security guards acted properly in using the MACE.
