Louisiana teacher handcuffed forcibly after asking questions at board meeting

A teacher in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana, was escorted out of a school board meeting by a city marshal, handcuffed and arrested after speaking out against a pay raise for the district's superintendent.

During the public comments portion of the Vermilion Parish school board meeting, Deyshia Hargrave, an English language arts teacher at Rene Rost Middle School, asked questions to the board regarding teacher's salaries, according to a report from KATC.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", Hargrave was seen saying in a YouTube video.

Hargrave was called upon a second time for comment.

Ms Hargrave appeared to leave the meeting willingly after the officer approached her and asked her to do so, but in the hallway video showed that she was on the ground being handcuffed and asking "what are you doing?" repeatedly. She is heard responding: "I am not - you just pushed me to the floor".

The district will not press any charges against Hargrave, Puyau told the station. She has since bonded out.

The board was meeting to discuss a new three-year contract for Superintendent Jerome Puyau. Handcuffs were later placed on Hargrave in the hallway, as she was removed from the building.

Fontana, who voted in favor of the final contract, said the board employs a city marshal to provide security during meetings.

Hargrave added that the raise was unwarranted, saying teachers and students have met their performance targets while class sizes have grown.

Requests for comment from Hargrave and Puyau were not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.

The teacher was booked into jail last night, even though the superintendent told KATC shortly after the meeting that he had called to inform police that the system didn't want any charges pressed.

The station also reported that it is unclear whether the marshal acted on his own volition or was instructed to arrest Hargrave by a school board member.
