Mom Arrested for Cheering at Graduation

Can you imagine getting handcuffed at your child's graduation for cheering? 

South Carolina mom Shannon Cooper was stunned when she was escorted out of South Florence High School's graduation ceremony and booked for disorderly conduct — because she proudly cheered as her 18-year-old daughter walked across the stage to receive her diploma. As WWAY3 reports, police said that an announcement at the ceremony had warned that anyone who screamed would be escorted out of the building.

The family's graduation celebration plans for the rest of the day had to be postponed.
