The Sacramento Bee reported that Arlington Community Schools released a statement that noted the night was meant to celebrate 500 students who earned over $30,600,000 in college scholarships.

They sat down and Murphy said a man next to her 13-year-old niece became belligerent.

The video shows two women throwing punches at multiple people.

A high school graduation in Arlington, Tenn., is the latest proof.

The melee was caught on camera by Octavius Adams, who was in the audience at Bellevue Baptist Church, PIX11 sister station WREG reports.

The profanity-laced video rolls on, as attempted punches are thrown and others try to separate the two sides as women begin fighting and then tussling on chairs. Several Bellevue security officers had to step in to calm things down. While advocating on her friend's behalf she pointedly reminds the man he is not in uniform nor did he show the handcuffed woman a badge. "They think it only happens towards a certain race, but my thing is behavior is human behavior, it's not race behavior", Adams said. I'm going to assume that lady in the brown had a drink or 12 before joining the festivities.

Security officials removed the adults and the graduation proceeded without further interruption.

One graduation attendee, possibly the man filming the fight, is continuously heard saying, "At the graduation", and, "Lord forgive me".

"At least have respect for the church itself and the graduating students. your kids at that", Adams said. "I don't know what was special about them, but they wanted them".

Arlingtom County Community Schools released a statement saying that the adults caused a distraction that disrupted the goal of 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.

Nothing says graduation like a massive brawl breaking out between parents inside of a Memphis church.
