Class act: La. teacher handcuffed at school board meeting

Teacher Forcibly Removed from Meeting After Questioning Superintendent Raise

Deyshia Hargrave, a middle school language arts teacher, spoke prior to the vote and questioned the school board's decision to consider a $38,000 raise for Superintendent Jerome Puyau.

It was then that the skirmished happened, in what appeared to be a hallway, while the cameras rolled.

She said that it was unfair that he was being given a performance-based raise when it was the teachers and students who were "doing the work" to meet those goals.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person in position of leadership getting any type of raise". The board does not plan to press charges against the teacher.

In emotional form, a Louisiana center teacher was expelled from a school executive gathering in binds Monday night after she stood up about educator pay.

Reggie replied, "You are going to leave, or I am going to remove you", while putting his hand on his handcuffs.

He also added that the marshal who arrested Hargrave is a school officer employed by the school board who was "not acting in any official capacity on behalf of the city of Abbeville".

Following the freakish - and violent - arrest, Vermilion Parish School Board Superintendent Jerome Puyau told the local news outlet the district won't press charges against Hargrave.

Hargrave, her school, Puyau, Fontana, and the city marshal's office did not respond to BuzzFeed News's request for comment. He told her to "stop resisting", to which she replied, "I am not, you just pushed me to the floor".

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

The teacher was still jailed and later released on bond.

According to Ike Funderburk, Abbeville's city attorney and prosecutor, no charges will be filed against Hargrave.

According to KATC, at least one school board member ruled her "out of order" at one point during the discussion.
