Teacher removed from school board meeting in handcuffs
Jan 10, 2018, 00:32
A teacher in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana, was escorted out of a school board meeting by a city marshal, handcuffed and arrested after speaking out against a pay raise for the district's superintendent.
Deyshia Hargrave, an English language arts teacher at Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan, Louisiana, was questioning a proposed $38,000 raise for the district superintendent during the meeting's public comment period when a city marshal asked her to leave.
"A superintendent or any person in 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".
Despite reports from KATC that Puyau told media that the school board would not file charges against Hargrave, the teacher was booked on charges of remaining while forbidden and resisting an officer. At that point, a city marshal on duty at the meeting grabbed her and removed her from the meeting. Hargrave yelled as the officer picked her up from the floor and pushed her towards an exit, commanding her to "stop resisting".
Following the freaky - and violent - arrest, Vermilion Parish School Board Superintendent Jerome Puyau told the local news outlet the district won't press charges against Hargrave. She was later released on bond.
Hargrave was placed in handcuffs before she was escorted from the building.
"She got away from what I believe was the germane issue", he said.
Ms Hargrave told the board: "you're making our job more difficult" by not addressing valid pay concerns.
The board was meeting to discuss a new three-year contract for Superintendent Jerome Puyau. "It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher".
KATC said it was unclear whether the marshal was acting on his own or if the board asked him to remove Hargrave.
School board member Laurie Leblanc did speak out for Ms Hargrave after the incident, saying: "what happened here tonight, the way that females are treated in Vermillion Parrish.I have never seen a man removed from this room".
Requests for comment from Hargrave and Puyau were not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.
Global News reached out to the Abbeville Marshal's Office, but no one was unavailable for comment.
