Parents Brawl During High School Graduation
Video of parents brawling at Arlington High School’s graduation on Tuesday (May16) has gone viral.
The fight involved three women and two men, who started shoving, throwing drinks, punches, and pulling hair over seats.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the graduation took place inside the sanctuary of Bellevue Baptist Church, in Cordova.
See the video below.
I’m SO mad at homie’s reactions and sound effects while filming.
One woman was handcuffed and another was escorted out.
No charges were filed.
Jeffrey Mayo, the chief of staff for Arlington Community Schools released the following statement:
Last night we celebrated 500 students who graduated from Arlington High School. This year’s class earned over $30,600,000 in college scholarships.
It was unfortunate that a couple of adults in the audience exhibited the behavior they did prior to the ceremony beginning and thus has caused a distraction from the celebration of our students’ accomplishments. The graduation ceremony was not affected by this incident due to the actions of Bellevue’s security team who promptly removed the adults from the ceremony.
It is our hope that the focus will shift to our students and their accomplishments instead of the poor decisions by adults in attendance. Congratulations to our 2017 graduates of Arlington High School.
