INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Three female teens were arrested Monday after a fight that involved pepper spray broke out at North Central High School.
Around 11:50 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan police responded to the L hallway near the south gym for a fight, a police report said.
During the fight, pepper spray was released on several students. The female with the pepper spray told police she waited for two female students to walk out of the gym before releasing the spray. The spray also hit four other students in the hallway, the report said.
All six students were treated at the school nurses office and refused medical attention.
The teen and two others were taken into custody for having homemade weapons on them – a sock with a cylinder metal weight tied in the end and a combination padlock.
One of the teens admitted to bringing the spray and weighted socks to school because "she wanted to be prepared in case she was jumped." She also said she gave the weapons to the two other students to "use them if needed," the report said.
School officials later told police the female with the pepper spray said she had planned to confront the two girls because she saw mean posts on Twitter after a fight that happened last Thursday, the report said.
