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 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.
