Officers Cleared in Pepper-Spraying of Dancers
Police in a small town in Utah were cleared of excessive force allegations after they pepper-sprayed some dancers performing a traditional Polynesian dance after a high school football game last week. A report says the Roosevelt, Utah officers could have chosen other ways to maintain security but spraying the dancers was not inappropriate, didn't violate policy or state law. The officers claimed the dancers were blocking an exit as players and game officials tried to leave. The dance group went to Roosevelt to watch a relative play in his final game for the opposing team.
