DAVIS, Calif. — UC Davis on Tuesday released thousands of email messages related to last November’s pepper-spraying of unarmed Occupy UC Davis protesters.

The documents are the result of public records requests from The Enterprise and other media outlets dating back to the days after the Nov. 18 incident during which about a dozen protesters were pepper-sprayed and 10 others arrested.

A first look found scores of calls for the resignation of Chancellor Linda Katehi or messages aimed at then-UCD police Lt. John Pike, who sprayed students who refused to move from a sidewalk on the campus Quad.
