Lee High School student in Jacksonville, Florida was arrested on the school campus after she allegedly pepper sprayed a group of teens. BONUS: Police also found loaded gun in the car her daughter had driven to school.
Police broke up a fight that had occurred on the Lee High School campus around 2:00 Monday afternoon. When police investigated the incident, several of the girls reported that they had been pepper sprayed by Jackson.
Police believe Jackson used the pepper spray to break up a fight that her daughter was involved in.
Two of the girls claimed they had been excused from class to get their books, however principal Denise Hall stated that the girls skipped 4th period to attend a fight in the parking lot.
"Why is a mom at school during school hours fighting children?" asked the mother of the one of the girl's who claimed she was pulled out a car and attacked.
"She wasn't using her head, she was using pepper spray," said Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesman Ken Jefferson.
During the investigation, police checked Jackson's vehicle, which her 16 year old daughter had driven to school that morning. Inside, they found an expired pepper spray canister and a loaded hand gun.
Jackson told police that she didn't know the gun was in the car, however Jackson's daughter disputed the claim, telling police her mother knew about the gun and had instructed her not to bother it.
As a result of the incident, Chauntrell Jackson was charged with felony child abuse and failure to store a firearm in a safe manner. She was booked into the Duval County Jail on a $750 bond.
