Four people were charged with disturbing the peace after cheering too loudly at a high school graduation ceremony in Senatobia, Miss., Memphis television station WREG reported on Tuesday.
Police at Northwest Mississippi Community College, where the ceremony was held, told WREG that Senatobia Municipal School District Superintendent Jay Foster, told attendees at the ceremony to refrain from cheering and applause until the end of the ceremony.
Four people, including Ursula Miller and Henry Walker (pictured below), both of whom are black, were asked to leave the ceremony after cheering on the graduates.
When Lanarcia Walker graduated, Miller yelled out her niece's name.

A few days after the ceremony, those asked to leave for cheering were served with arrest warrants.
