South Carolina Mom Arrested for Cheering at Her Daughter’s Graduation
Shannon Cooper says that moments after she cheered her daughter on as she received her diploma, she was handcuffed and arrested for disorderly conduct! Of the arrest, Cooper said, “I can’t fight the law. I can’t argue with the police. But I’m like, are you serious? I didn’t do anymore than the others [parents] did.”
The police say that there was an announcement before the ceremony began, making it clear that anyone who cheered or screamed would be escorted from the building.
The woman had to spend several hours at the detention center, so her daughter’s graduation plans were completely ruined.
