Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- It’s the time of year for graduation ceremonies, but if you cheer too much for your graduate, you might be in trouble.
Across the country, school administrators are actually stopping ceremonies and even ejecting parents when celebrations get too excessive. One woman’s cheers in South Carolina landed her in handcuffs and she was charged with disorderly conduct.
“I got up and I said, ‘Yes! My baby made it. Yes!’” said South Carolina Parent, Shannon Cooper.
“That’s all I can picture, me crying, looking at the police van knowing my mother [was] in there,” said Cooper’s graduating daughter, Iesha Cooper.
A similar incident happened in Cincinnati, Ohio, where a student says his high school won’t give him the diploma he earned because of too much cheering.
