(MYFOXAL) — A South Carolina mother believes she was unfairly singled out because police arrested her for cheering at her daughter’s high school graduation.

Shannon Cooper let out a cheer for her daughter, Lesha, as she received her diploma from South Florence High School on Saturday night.

That’s when police slapped on the cuffs and escorted her out of the Florence Civic Center.

“I was just like ok, I can’t fight the law. I can’t, you know, argue with the police, but I’m like, are you serious?” Cooper said. “I didn’t do any more than the others did, which I feel like no one should have went to jail.”
