See Teacher Get Handcuffed After Criticizing School Superintendent's Raise

A Vermilion Parish teacher found herself being escorted out of the school board meeting in handcuffs after she was arrested by a school board security guard.

Middle school English teacher Deyshia Hargrave called into question the $30,000 raise stipulated in superintendent Jermone Puyau's new contract, which she called a "slap in the face for teachers, cafeteria workers or any other support staff". "Due to the location of her arrest and the arresting agency's jurisdiction, which includes the city limits of Abbeville, she was booked in and bonded from the local police department".

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.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", Hargrave said. He told her to "stop resisting", to which she replied, "I am not, you just pushed me to the floor".

"Sir, hold on, I am way smaller than you!"

KATC obtained the video showing her being recognized by the board, then calmly explain her concerns.

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.

A Louisiana teacher was handcuffed and briefly jailed after asking about teacher pay during a school board meeting.

The Daily Mail reported school officials said there would be no charges against the teacher, from Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan.

It is unclear whether the marshal acted on board members' orders or his own accord, according to KATC-TV.

City prosecutor Ike Funderburk told the news station that school authorities emphasized Tuesday that they were not keen on squeezing charges. After being called on a second time, a city marshal stepped in.
