A couple of seniors at Westfield High School in Massachusettes decided to perform a mock lightsaber battle in their cafeteria during lunch. While the students who viewed the battle gave a standing ovation, school officials were not quite as amused. The school's principle promptly suspended the participating students and informed them that they had lost their priviledge to attend graduation. Check out the local news video below detailing the lightsaber battle with witness accounts.

Fellow classmates and supporters from around the world have come to the defense of the 2 students and the support looks to have paid off. MassLive.com now reports that Westfield High School Principal Raymond K. Broderick has overturned the suspensions (along with the suspensions of a couple students who spread Vaseline on a number of school door knobs) and the students will once again be able to attend graduation. All's well that ends well!
