Teacher handcuffed after questioning superintendent's pay raise during school board meeting

A Louisiana teacher who spoke out against a superintendent's new contract was handcuffed and arrested during a school board meeting in an incident caught on video.

Fontana, the board president, told NBC News that Hargrave had violated meeting policies, by taking up extra time and asking questions during a public comment section.

It is unclear if the security officer was ordered to arrest Hargrave and remove her from the meeting. A teacher's union lawyer is investigating, and while teachers were at work Tuesday, a School Board member says there is talk of a strike.

Deyshia Hargrave, a middle-school English teacher for the Vermilion Parish School System, was booked into jail for resisting an officer.

An Abbeville city marshal cut her off and directed her out of the room, despite protest from those in the crowd.

Hargrave has yet to comment on her removal.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", she said at the meeting. Superintendent Jerome Puyau, who is the beneficiary of the $38,000 raise, told local reporters that the school board was not pressing charges against Hargrave. She was later removed in handcuffs. He told her to "stop resisting", to which she replied, "I am not, you just pushed me to the floor". After posing another question, an Abbeville city marshal on duty at the meeting grabbed Hargrave and removed her from the meeting.

"Hold on, I am way smaller than you", the woman then said to the marshal as he shoved her toward an exit.

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

The National Education Association reported that Louisiana saw the largest decrease in average public school teacher salary between 2014 and 2015, with the average salary for the 2015-2016 school year coming out to approximately $47,000.
