WOMAN ARRESTED FOR CHEERING AT GRADUATION:
A mother cheering her daughter on at South Florence High School's graduation ceremony in South Carolina was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Shannon Cooper said she was humiliated when she was escorted out of the ceremony for celebrating for her 18-year-old daughter, Iesha Cooper. She said, "I don't even think humiliation could describe how I felt." Police said they warned the crowd that screamers and cheerers would be escorted out of the building and that those who were disorderly while they were being escorted out would be charged as such. Cooper said, "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." She was released a few hours after her arrest.
