On Monday, Deyshia Hargrave, a teacher at Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan, Louisiana, attended a Vermilion Parish School Board meeting to ask how the board could authorize a pay increase for the superintendent while school employees haven't seen a raise in years, KATC reported. "I feel like it's a slap in the face to all the teachers, cafeteria workers, 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, 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.

Superintendent Jerome Puyau told the ABC affiliate KATC that he had called the police afterwards to notify them the school board did not want to press charges for the meeting disruption, but it remains unclear whether the arresting officer was acting under his own accord or at the direction of a member of the school board. She was later released on bond.

She was taken outside by a police officer, handcuffed, and arrested for resisting arrest.


Teacher Deyshia Hargrave spoke up during public comment and said, "You're making our jobs more hard".

KATC, of Lafayette, had a crew at the meeting and was videotaping it, along with another person who shot video, The Times-Picayune reported. The Abbeville Marshals Office have not returned phone calls seeking comment.

Hargrave added that the raise was unwarranted, saying teachers and students have met their performance targets while class sizes have grown.

At least one school board member said at the meeting that the treatment Hargrave received was unacceptable, noting that she had "never seen a man removed from this room". The school district and other authorities have not commented about her arrest since Monday night.
