Police believe pepper spray sickened Michigan library patrons

Those Darn Kids: Ann Arbor Police believe a couple of teens used pepper spray or a similar chemical agent as a prank at a library branch and nearby supermarket that sent five people to the hospital Wednesday night.

Investigators have not identified the teens but saw the same two boys on surveillance cameras at both the Ann Arbor District Library branch in the Westgate Shopping Center and the neighboring Kroger store before dozens of people complained of burning eyes and dizziness, said Detective Sgt. Jeff Connelly.

“Thus far, it appears to be some kind of prank committed by a few teenagers that we haven’t identified, but we’re following leads,” Connelly said this morning.
