Taser used to break up fight at Peoria school

A Peoria school resource officer used a Taser stun gun in order to break up a fight Monday morning at Peoria High School.

The Peoria Journal Star reports that a student brought out a knife during the fight while refusing to listen to the officer’s commands to drop the weapon.

While five girls were involved in the fight, no injuries were reported. Those involved, the Journal Star reported, not only face arrest but also school discipline.
