BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A 50-year-old Bridgeport woman in a wheelchair was arrested Tuesday after forcing a lockdown at Bassick High School by spraying pepper spray at students, according to the Connecticut Post.
Yvonne Young of Lenox Avenue — who has one leg — had gone to the school to speak to the principal because her daughter had been bullied, according to the Post. She made her way to the third floor, where she pepper-sprayed a group of fighting teens, forcing about 12 students to receive medical treatment, the Post said.
Young was charged with third-degree assault and risk of injury to children, according to the Post.
