Louisiana teacher removed from school board meeting in handcuffs

During a public comment period of a school board meeting, middle school language arts teacher Deyshia Hargrave was recognized, and explained, "For 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 teachers, cafeteria workers and any other support staff we have". At that point, an Abbeville city marshal removed her from the meeting and placed handcuffs on her as she was escorted from the building, according to the report.

"I'm not - you just pushed me to the floor", Hargrave responds as the unnamed officer begins to push her towards the exit.

Outside, Hargrave, the city marshal and several concerned meeting attendees wait around as the teacher is told she's being arrested.

The board member said what was on the agenda was the superintendent's new contract and members of the audience answer back, "with a raise". I don't care if the performance targets are met - you're making our jobs even more hard.

As the security guard pulls her down the hallway toward the exit, she continues to scream.

"I have reviewed the video and I am not going to approve any charges against the teacher", Funderburk told KATC.

Hargrave was arrested for resisting an officer and remaining after being forbidden, but the school system is not pressing charges, KATC reported.

The teacher was still jailed and later released on bond. The disturbing incident took place after Hargrave asked school board members to justify the massive raise while teachers and school employees had reportedly gone without a pay hike in years.

Puyau said Hargrave was not charged with anything and it isn't clear if the marshal was asked to remove her or if he was acting on his own accord.

While she was being recognized by the superintendent, an Abbeville city marshal approached her and asked her to leave.
