Fort Saskatchewan RCMP is investigating a fight between two St. Andre Bessette students on Wednesday morning (Sept. 29).
At about 11 a.m. a police officer was waved down by multiple students near the bus transfer station. Upon arriving at the scene, it was determined that an altercation between two students ended with one student getting sprayed with a chemical irritant.
RCMP Inspector Barry LaRocque told MIX 107 the chemical was similar to that of mace or bear spray.
After consulting with students at the scene, one teenage boy was taken into custody. He was eventually released into the possession of a parent.
Police believe the incident started on school property with some sort of disagreement before things got physical at the bus station.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
