UPDATED: Police Pepper Spray Santa Monica College Students - Santa Monica, CA Patch

Campus police pepper sprayed as many as 30 Santa Monica College students this evening as they disrupted a meeting of the Board of Trustees, which is moving forward with a controversial plan to offer a second tier of classes not subsidized by the state.

Paramedics are at the college now evaluating students, one of whom claimed to have been put in a chokehold before she was pepper sprayed.
