He said police used pepper spray on about 20 people who were fighting, while one man was arrested for assault after police say he pushed an officer.
"He did not get his shoes; he went to jail," Murphy said.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
