CINCINNATI (AP) — It was kindergarten brawl – not the kids but the parents. A melee erupted at a Kindergarten graduation celebration in a Cincinnati suburb yesterday.

Authorities say up to 20 people were involved and resulted in the lockdown of Mt. Healthy North Elementary.

Schools Superintendent Lori Handler says no one was badly injured after the fight broke out over an apparent domestic dispute. Handler says it had been a beautiful ceremony until someone started throwing punches.

She adds “people never cease to amaze” her. One parent tells WCPO-TV it’s “pretty pathetic.” Police are looking for one man on charges of assault and inducing panic.
