(USA Today) – A Mississippi schools superintendent who acted to press charges against three people who cheered at a high school graduation has dropped the charges, according to local news organizations.

Schools Superintendent Jay Foster dropped the charges on Monday, one day before the case was set to go to court, News Channel 3 out of memphis and the Clarion-Ledger are reporting. Foster could not be reached and no reason was given for the decision.

The case erupted about a week ago when word leaked about the incident in which people shouted good wishes and cheers at the May 21 graduation of Senatobia (Miss.) High School after Foster made clear that audience members should hold applause and cheers as graduates received diplomas. Four people were removed from the ceremonies and Foster had charges for disturbing

A local Justice Court clerk told the Clarion-Ledger that Foster filed the paperwork to drop the charges Monday afternoon.
