Teacher removed from Vermilion school board meeting in handcuffs

She was called on a second time and asked another question to the board, KATC reported.

Several in the crowd can then be heard saying "yes, it is", in support of Hargrave.

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.

Hargrave continues to ask her question when a city marshal approaches her and tells her she needs to leave. I don't care if the performance targets are met - you're making our jobs even more hard. Ms Hargrave did not appear to be raising her voice during the meeting.

Suddenly, Hargrave can be heard yelling. Shortly after being escorted out of the meeting, Hargrave was handcuffed by an Abbeville city marshal. She is heard reacting: "I am not - you just pushed me to the floor".

"Stop resisting", the officer is heard telling her after she was placed in handcuffs.


"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", Hargrave said during the meeting.

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

"What happened here tonight; the way that females are treated in Vermilion Parish, I have never seen a man removed from this room".

LeBeouf added that Hargrave is "a great teacher, a great individual".

Deyshia Hargrave, a teacher in the Vermilion Parish School System, asked questions regarding the board's consideration of a $38,000 raise for the superintendent of the school system.

In any case, Hargrave was set up for the city imprison for "staying in the wake of being prohibited" and opposing an officer, KATC-TV revealed Tuesday. "I talked with the attorney for the school board, and they do not wish to pursue any charges against the teacher".
