3 St. Paul Students Charged With Rioting

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Three teens, including a 14-year-old, are pleading not guilty to charges of rioting following a fight at their St. Paul high school.

Police used pepper spray to control one of the students at Central High School last week. A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old student are also charged in juvenile court. All three are males.

School district spokeswoman Toya Stewart Downey tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press administrators learned the fight was planned and shared on social media.

She says it's important for students to share such planned incidents with parents or other adults who could intervene.
