Davis pepper-spray cop not working at school

DAVIS, Calif.

A spokeswoman for the school said Lt. John Pike's employment with the school ended on Tuesday. She declined to specify if Pike quit or was fired.

The 39-year-old had been on paid leave since the incident last November.

Footage of Pike spraying the student demonstrators during an Occupy protest on campus went viral and sparked outrage.
