WATCH: Parents Get Education On The Rules Of Savesies.

A Memphis graduation ceremony will be memorable for all the wrong reasons after several adults started throwing punches over some saved seats.  Graduating seniors at Arlington High School were walking down the aisle when it happened and someone caught the whole thing on video. 

The school was less than thrilled and issued this statment: 

"Last night we celebrated 500 students who graduated from Arlington High School.  This year's class earned over $30,600,000 in college scholarships.  It was unfortunate that a couple of adults in the audience exhibited the behavior they did prior to the ceremony beginning and thus has caused a distraction from the celebration of our students' accomplishments.  The graduation ceremony was not affected by this incident due to the actions of Bellevue's security team who promptly removed the adults from the ceremony.  It is our hope that the focus will shift to our students and their accomplishments instead of the poor decisions by adults in attendance.  Congratulations to our 2017 graduations of Arlington High School."

Wow.  Just wow.
