DRY RIDGE, Ky. -- A student was criminally charged Monday because he pushed in line and cussed at teachers as he waited for graduation tickets, according to the Grant County Sheriff's Office.
Chief Deputy Brian Maines said the student faces a count of disorderly conduct.
Grant County High School officials told seniors Monday morning their graduation ceremony would be moved into the gymnasium because of recent rainfall.
Instead of unlimited seating in the stadium, seniors were limited to six tickets for their guests.
Some were unhappy, Maines said, so the school resource officer called in more deputies as a precaution. The situation had settled down, but the deputies hung around as a precaution.
As seniors lined up for tickets, Maines said some were upset and pushed their way to the front.
Deputies pulled one student out of line and charged him for pushing and cussing, Maines said.
According to the district, people without tickets can watch a live feed in the school's auditorium or cafeteria.
Gym lobby doors will open at 5:35 p.m. Monday. The district asked people to carpool if possible, because athletic fields are too wet for parking. Overflow parking will be at the Dry Ridge Outlet Center, with a shuttle service starting at 4:45 p.m.
