Kindergarten Aug 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Two females have been charged with misdemeanors which could land them in jail for up to six months after a brawl broke out involving twenty adults in a Southern California Kindergarten graduation on Wednesday.

After the situation exploded at a kindergarten graduation ceremony, twenty adults broke into a brawl, leaving two women under arrest and the school on lock down. A few mothers were out on the field near Puesta del Sol elementary school in a discussion, when a fight broke between 31-year-old Queiona Burt and 29-year-old Marina Ruth Vargas, according to a spokeswoman for the San Bernadino County sheriff, Karen Hunt.

At that point, several men became involved, and the heated discussion between two women quickly turned into a brawl of many adults. The school was forced to go on lock down, while deputies tries to get the whole sordid story straight. Witnesses who called in to the police department’s tip line helped lead to the arrest of the two women.

According to Maureen Mills, the assistant superintendent for the schools, more arrests could follow. “We’re still looking at whatever we can do to hold these people accountable,” Mills said. “We cannot control the parents’ behavior.”

According to prosecutors, those arrested could face up to six months in jail if they are convicted. They were charged with interference with a peaceful conduct at school. They could also face 90 additional days for unlawful acts committed on school grounds.

Because of this incident, parents were banned from a sixth grade graduation ceremony which was held on Thursday. The cause of the fight is still under investigation, but no injuries were reported.
