A teenage girl was reportedly pepper sprayed outside a Donald Trump campaign rally in Janesville, Wisconsin Tuesday.

Photos and video footage appear to show 15-year-old Alex Drake surrounded by hecklers and when she pushes one, he peppers sprays her in the face.

A reporter from the Wisconsin State Journal was standing right in front of the incident and managed to snap some dramatic images from the incident while also getting sprayed as well.

Police tried to pour water into her face to clear up the teen’s eyes.

This is not the first time Trump rallies have taken a turn for the worse.

At a campaign stop in Florida, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, allegedly grabbed a reporter, leaving her with bruises.

Lewandowski has been charged with misdemeanor battery.

Things have gotten heated pretty much everywhere Trump has visited, including Utah, Arizona and Illinois. Tensions were so high in Chicago, a rally was forced to be postponed.

Republicans voters will go to the polls in Wisconsin April 5 to try and decide whether to back Trump’s run for president.

His chances in that state took a bit of a dip Tuesday when Governer Scott Walker threw his support behind Ted Cruz.
