Middle School Teacher Handcuffed, Arrested at School Board Meeting

Middle School Teacher Handcuffed, Arrested at School Board Meeting

"A superintendent or any person in a position of leadership getting any type of raise, I feel like it's a slap in the face to all the teachers, cafeteria workers, and any other support staff we have", Ms Hargrave noted.

Deyshia Hargrave, a middle school teacher in the Vermilion Parish school system, was videotaped being escorted out of a room and then wrestled into handcuffs by a city marshal on January 8. She is heard reacting: "I am not - you just pushed me to the floor".

Hargrave was placed in handcuffs before she was escorted from the building.

Board members complained that the meeting was to discuss the superintendent's contract, not teacher pay.

She reminded the school board and Puyau that it was the teachers and students who have met state goals, yet they have not gotten a raise. "Sir, hold on, I am way smaller than you".

She was called on twice during the public comments section of the meeting and was told it was not a time for Ms Hargrave's several questions regarding teachers' salaries. He escorted her to his squad auto and then radioed the Abbeville Police Department to send a patrol unit.

KATC obtained the video showing her being recognized by the board, then calmly explain her concerns.

It remains unclear whether the marshal was acting on his own accord or on orders of the board members, according to KATC.

A Louisiana English teacher's criticism of the superintendent's $38,000 raise was met with handcuffs and a trip to jail.

After Hargrave began asking more questions about the raise, a city marshal on duty at the meeting allegedly approached her and warned, "you are going to leave or I am going to remove you".

Abbeville city attorney Ike Funderburk told the Lafayette ABC affiliate that he would not approve any charges against Deyshia Hargrave. The Abbeville Marshals Office has not returned telephone calls looking for input.
