If your kids graduate and you get too excited about it, you might end up with a criminal record. A South Carolina mother experienced the humiliation of being arrested for cheering too loud at her daughter’s graduation ceremony, which took place in Florence, South Carolina.
The mother, Shannon Cooper, was ecstatic about seeing her daughter Iesha go across the stage. This led a nearby police officer to conclude that the mom had engaged in disorderly conduct.
I am still living in shock,” Cooper told msnbc.com. “It all seems like a bad dream, a nightmare of what was to be one of the happiest days of our lives. I cheered for my baby and I got the cuffs.”
