Woman Arrested For Graduation Cheering

FLORENCE, S.C., (UPI) — A South Carolina woman said police escorted her out of her daughter’s graduation for cheering and charged her with disorderly conduct.

Shannon Cooper said she was escorted out of the South Florence High School graduation Saturday at Florence Civic Center for cheering when her daughter, Iesha Cooper, 18, received her diploma, WPDE-TV, Myrtle Beach, S.C., reported Tuesday.

“Humiliation. I don’t even think humiliation could describe how I felt. You know, because I feel from just my feelings and then looking at my daughter how she felt, I could take you know you know if I did something ,but like I said, yes they said you’ll be escorted out no problem. I’ll be escorted out. I’ll go nicely because I’m gonna cheer. It was hard work. I went through so much to get her to this point you know,” Cooper said.

Police refused to comment on individual cases but said the crowd was warned anyone who cheered or screamed would be escorted out of the building. They said people who exhibited disorderly behavior while being escorted out were charged with disorderly conduct.

“Disorderly conduct? What’s the disorderly conduct? How was I so disorderly you know any different from just a happy parent? I didn’t resist arrest, nothing,” said Cooper, who was released a few hours after her arrest on $225 bond.
