UC Davis pepper-spray officer no longer working at school
DAVIS, Calif. (KABC) -- A University of California, Davis police officer caught on camera pepper-spraying students during a protest no longer works for the university.
A spokeswoman for the school said Lt. John Pike's employment with the school ended on Tuesday. She declined to specify if Pike quit or was fired.
The 39-year-old had been on paid leave since the incident last November.
Footage of Pike spraying the student demonstrators during an Occupy protest on campus went viral and sparked outrage.
