DAVIS (CBS13) – The California Attorney General’s Office has declined to investigate the pepper-spraying of students at UC Davis.
Both the Yolo County District Attorney and Sheriff had requested the Attorney General’s help in investigating the November 18 incident where a campus police officer used pepper-spray on a group of sitting protesters.
The pepper-spraying prompted large protests and calls for the Davis chancellor’s resignation after videos of the incident went viral.
The District Attorney said they had requested help from the Attorney General because of “significant and statewide issues involved.”
The Attorney General’s Office cited several factors in their denial of the request including the fact that the Governor had already called for a review of the event and their confidence in the District Attorney’s ability to handle the case.
