BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) – Two parents have just been arrested (2:25 p.m.) outside Del Prado Elementary School in Boca Raton. Sources tell that the parents were mad at something – what that “thing” is remains unclear.

The situation became so intense that an officer, sources tell us, a school officer sprayed the parents with pepper spray. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue is now on scene in an attempt to mitigate the effects of the pepper spray deployment.

Both parents are in police custody. We are awaiting more details from those responsible. Parents of Del Prado students are expected to be notified later this afternoon that the event has occurred.

The first dispatch for emergency medical services was transmitted by Palm Beach County Fire Radio at 1:41 p.m.

We will identify the parents after the reservation process is completed at the Palm Beach County Jail.

UPDATE: 3:20 p.m. – We have learned that PBSO assisted school board police with the arrest.
