The Manitou Springs High School student said while she was dancing at her prom on April 22 chaperones Jennifer Farmer and Hannah Rockey sprayed a group of students they felt were dancing too provocatively.
The police report says one of the mothers told a security guard that the students were dancing “like they were having sex with their clothes on” and it appeared as if “they were advertising sex.”
Some students said they were forced to leave their prom because the spray got in their eyes and mouths.
Farmer and Rockey, both 42, were cited for harassment and obscene language.
Superintendent of schools Edward Longfield released a statement saying in part: “The alleged actions by parent chaperones during the high school prom are in no way condoned by the school district. School personnel supervising the dance did not observe any of the alleged actions of the parents chaperone. Once notified by students of the alleged actions, the school staff took immediate steps to address student concerns.
If they are found guilty the women faces up to $750 in fines and up to six months in jail.
The women have denied the accusations.
