RTA officials released findings of an internal investigation into an incident in which an officer used pepper spray on a crowd of protesters back in July.

Sgt. Robert Schwab, a 25-year veteran of the force, pepper sprayed a crowd of protesters the evening of July 26.

The protesters were gathered near East 24th Street and Euclid Avenue, where an intoxicated 14-year-old African-American boy was arrested.

Protesters at the time told newsnet5.com they were angry with how RTA officers handled the arrest and claimed the officers roughed up the teen.

Video shot by a protester showing Schwab pepper spraying the crowd went viral and was featured on national news sources.
