FORT LAUDERDALE — The brawl that erupted between high school students at an Orlando theme park on Sunday was so raucous that police officers repeatedly used chemical spray to disperse fighting teens, according to police reports released Tuesday.

While police tried to stop the fighting, about 100 young people tried to charge the gates at the Wet 'n Wild water park to regain entry and some accosted its security staff and police, the reports said. When one officer tried to order about 20 teenagers off a bus and pulled his handgun, they told him they were not afraid, prompting him to use the chemical spray, police said.
