Some Bryan Station High School students were taken to the hospital Thursday after school law enforcement officers used pepper spray to subdue fighting.
Fayette County Public Schools spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall said on Friday that she could not comment on students' medical condition and could not say how many students were taken to the hospital.
She said she had no additional information other than what was in an email the principal sent to Bryan Station High parents on Thursday:
According to the email, two students got into a fight in the cafeteria. When a few other students decided to get involved, the situation appeared to be escalating and a school law enforcement officer used pepper spray to subdue one of the students.
Never miss a local story.
A few other students who were in the area also had some side effects from the spray. District officials called an emergency unit to provide medical treatment for the students affected and some were taken to the hospital.
District officials said for the students involved, "appropriate disciplinary actions" will be taken.
