Firm to get $300 an hour for UC Davis pepper spray probe

DAVIS, Calif. (AP) – Officials at UC Davis say a private security firm will be getting $300 an hour for investigating the use of pepper spray by campus police officers during a demonstration. UC spokeswoman Dianne Klein told Sacramento television station KCRA that New York-based security consulting firm Kroll will be paid the fee for investigating the Nov. 18 incident. Klein told the station that the probe is expected to last 30 business days, but she could not say how much the entire bill would amount to because the firm will determine how many hours it puts into the investigation. Video footage of two officers spraying an orange cloud of pepper spray at the protesters as they sat peacefully on the ground circulated online and sparked more protests.
