UNH Red Sox celebration was a riot says chief that warranted an aggressive police response




When rioters began throwing bottles and other debris, police reacted with "pepper spray foggers," according to Kurz. The foggers, which have a distance of three feet, brought officers within range of the debris, so the police changed to pepper ball guns. Pepper balls are packs of pepper spray within a ball, which can be shot against any solid object, including people, and cause the same effects as pepper spray.
