Brawl At Cleveland Kindergarten Graduation Blamed on Spilled PunchS

Police in Cleveland were called earlier today to break up a brawl that broke out during a kindergarten graduation ceremony at a local elementary school.

The fight started inside Michael R. White Elementary School between two teenage girls, allegedly over a spilled cup of punch, and moved outside to the parking lot after several parents got involved.

None of the kindergartners were reportedly involved.

Initial reports of shots fired proved false, though law enforcement officials say a hammer and a pipe were recovered from the scene of the crime.

Eight people were arrested, including the two juveniles. All face charges of aggravated rioting.

The ceremony, which was nearing its end at the time, was not impacted by the brawl.
