Cop Pepper Spraying Teenage Girl

Body-camera video released by police shows an incident in which officers pepper-sprayed a 15-year-old girl after her bicycle allegedly hit a car in Hagerstown. Authorities say the girl had refused to cooperate with police trying to question her about the accident and find a parent to authorize her refusal to receive medical treatment from paramedics on the scene. The 15-year-old girl faces charges of disorderly conduct, second degree assault, possession of marijuana and failure to obey a traffic device. The incident has prompted disagreement about whether the officers acted properly.
