Stun Gun Used To Break Up PA School Bus Fight

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Police say a fight on board a central Pennsylvania school bus was so out-of-control that an officer had to use a stun gun to break it up.

State police say the fight on board a Central Dauphin School District bus happened Tuesday afternoon and involved five male students.

Trooper Tom Pinkerton says school officials tried to intervene, then a state police trooper. He says all attempts to so break up the fight failed so the trooper used a stun gun on the most aggressive participant.

No charges have been filed against the students but Pinkerton says the investigation is continuing. District officials say the students could be expelled.
