BATON ROUGE- Police are investigating a fight that took place Thursday morning at the Career Academy in Baton Rouge.

Police say during the Fall Festival at the school, between 15 and 20 students got into a fight before an on-site officer broke it up. Sgt. Don Coppola with Baton Rouge Police said the incident started as a food fight, which then escalated.

Coppola said an officer working extra duty at the school used pepper spray to disperse the students, but nobody was seriously hurt. The school was also briefly placed on lockdown.

All students were escorted to their classrooms, while those involved in the fight were questioned by authorities. No arrests were made.

Officials say the students involved in the fight will face disciplinary action and possible expulsion.
