4 Colo. students suspended after pepper spray in ventilation system forces school evacuation
NIWOT, Colo. (AP) ' Four students at Niwot High School in Colorado have been suspended after pepper spray forced a school evacuation.
Four adults and 45 students were treated by paramedics for respiratory problems and skin irritation after the pepper spray got into a ventilation system.
According to KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/GFmbxU ), the suspended students could be charged with criminal use of a noxious substance if they fail to complete a justice program.
Mountain View firefighters decontaminated the building before students returned inside.
Niwot is between Boulder and Longmont.
