A pair of moms chaperoning a high school prom in Colorado were so disgusted by the "dirty dancing" they witnessed that they sprayed down the teenagers with Lysol and called girls "sluts" and "whores," police report. Some eight teens were hit with the spray, and some of it entered students' eyes and mouths; they had to leave their prom, according to cops. The women told police that the teens were dancing "like they were having sex with their clothes on," officials told the New York Daily News. The moms, Jennifer Farmer and Hannah Rockey, were cited for harassment and obscene language. Manitou Springs school district officials said they didn't condone the actions, and they would instruct future chaperones to avoid such behavior. (More Dirty Dancing stories.)
