Pepper spray used to break up school fight

Posted:
MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) -

Police were forced to use pepper spray to break up a student fight in Muskegon High School's cafeteria.

   WOOD-TV and MLive.com report that one student was arrested Tuesday and at least nine others temporarily held for their roles in the lunchtime brawl.

   A school resource officer broke up a fight that initially started between two girls. A male student then got involved and the fight escalated into about a half-dozen altercations in the West Michigan school.

   Police and school officials were reviewing surveillance video from the cafeteria.

   Some students could face charges.
