Memphis Police charged a mother with domestic assault after she reportedly got in a fight with her daughter at an elementary school graduation.

An embarrassing case of parents behaving badly at an elementary school graduation no less.

Memphis police said Erica Moody was one of many parents arguing during Westhaven Elementary’s graduation in Whitehaven Thursday.

They said as they asked one woman what was going on, Moody grabbed her hair, slapped her in the face a number of times, and refused to let go, even as police were trying to cuff her. The victim was Moody’s adult daughter.

Moody is charged with a number of crimes, including domestic assault, and resisting arrest.

But that’s not all. About 20 minutes later, police were called to the school office because a student attacked and punched the school secretary.
