Peoria High School Unrest Leads To Early Dismissal, Rescheduled Football Games
Several extracurricular activities are being rescheduled after an incident Friday at Peoria High School.
That includes the Danville-Richwoods football game and the Peoria High-Manual game. The Richwoods game will be played Saturday without spectators, and the Peoria/Manual game is now set for Sunday, also without a crowd.
School was dismissed early on Friday after "multiple disruptions," including a falsely pulled fire alarm.
Numerous fights broke out at the school, and several law enforcement agencies responded. Multiple pepperballs were fired to disperse the crowds.
The Peoria police chief said seven juveniles and two adults were arrested.
