Wilmington Police and New Hanover County deputies converged on the area around Williston Middle School Thursday night. A fight broke out behind the school while a talent show was going on inside. The school resource officer and a faculty member attempted to break up the fight and were rushed by the crowd. That is when the deputy fought back. Deputy Charles Smith of New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office said, "The deputy did use pepper spray to push back the crowd. EMS was called.” Three ambulances responded. Five people were treated and released at the scene, which moved down 11th Street to the corner of Castle. At this point no charges have been filed but the investigation is ongoing..
