— Students at Athens Drive High School in Raleigh were forced out of some parts of the building Tuesday morning after a fight in the cafeteria.

A spokesman for Wake County schools said three students were involved in the fight, and a student resource officer released pepper spray at the time when the cafeteria was full of students.

"It was a mess and people came out coughing, running, pushing,” Athens Drive High student Kayla Thompson said.

Following the fight, police arrested and charged Travion Martin, 17, Dominique Montrel Hill, 19, and Christian Rayshad King, 17, with one count of engaging in a affray and one count of resisting, delaying or obstructing a law enforcement officer, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

Approximately 15 students, who were uninvolved in the affray, complained of secondary exposure to the pepper spray and received on-scene treatment by EMS, Sughrue said. Three of the students were transported to a hospital for further observation.
