Kindergarten Graduation Brawl Could Put Two Women Behind Bars

(CBS)

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (CBS/AP) It's not entirely clear what triggered a brawl at a kindergarten graduation ceremony -- yes, you read correctly -- but two women who allegedly sparked the melee could get jail time.

Parents -- play nicely!

San Bernardino County investigators say the women were arguing and it got physical in a field near the June 25 ceremony at Puesta del Sol Elementary in Victorville, Calif.

Several men got involved and the fight became a brawl, forcing school officials to place the school on lockdown until deputies sorted things out. No one was hurt.

Court records show misdemeanor charges have been filed against 31-year-old Queiona Burt and 29-year-old Marina Ruth Vargas.

Prosecutors say the women face up to six months in jail if convicted for interference with peaceful conduct at a school, and another three months in jail for unlawful acts committed on school grounds.

Perhaps if both are convicted they could at least learn how to share a jail cell.
