VIDEO: Parents Pummeled at Las Vegas High School Graduation Fight

Amateur video captures parents brawling over seats.

A Las Vegas high school graduation devolved into chaos on Saturday after parents erupted into a fist fight over seating. 

The fight took place at a ceremony for students of Palo Verde High School and was caught on unverified amateur video, NBC affiliate KSNV reported. The video shows some adults punching and pushing each other as others attempt to break up the fight. Some stayed on the sidelines and shouted or took photos of the fight.

Although the fight started among parents, graduates said that both adults and children were hit, the station reported.

The event eventually proceeded mostly as usual, but the fracas did temporarily interrupt the ceremony involving 585 seniors.

University of Nevada Las Vegas police did not confirm the identities of anyone who participated in the fight or say whether anyone was charged.
