Teacher handcuffed by officer at school board meeting

A video on You Tube shows teacher Deyshia Hargrave expelled from a Vermilion Parish school board meeting in Louisiana

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.

"I have a serious issue with 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 for the teachers, the cafeteria workers or any other support staff we have", Hargrave is seen saying in the video posted to YouTube.

KATC reports that following Hargrave's comments, board president Anthony Fontana ruled that she was out of order and warned her that the public comment section was not a question-and-answer session. After being called on a second time, a city marshal stepped in. Fontana said it would have been the marshal's duty to escort her out of the meeting but not arrest her unless she had committed a crime.

Hargrave exited the room on her own, but once she reached the hallway, the officer took her to the ground and handcuffed her, leaving onlookers shocked.

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". She was later released on bond.

On Tuesday morning, Hargrave's Facebook page was filled with supportive comments, some thanking her for taking a stand.

Ms Hargrave told the board: "you're making our job more difficult" by not addressing valid pay concerns. The way that females are treated in Vermilion Parish, I have never seen a man removed from this room.

A TV news camera crew captured the moment a teacher from Vermilion Parish, Louisiana, was arrested during a school board meeting Monday night, and multiple recordings of the incident have spread quickly on social media.

Hargrave bonded out of jail, The Associated Press reported.
