PHOENIX (June 7, 2014) Dianne Barker, 65, of Phoenix, says she's been banned from doing cartwheels at meetings of the Maricopa Association of Governments.
An attorney for the association that oversees regional transportation projects said in a letter to Barker last month that she must "immediately cease performing cartwheels."
Barker's cartwheels are disruptive and a public safety liability, agency spokeswoman Kelly Taft told The Associated Press.
Barker says she will obey the association's request.
She was a cheerleader in college and says the cartwheels are a way for her to show her passion.
Taft says the association appreciates Barker's enthusiasm, but she should show it verbally.
