No charges for teacher who was removed from Vermilion school board meeting

Deyshia Hargrave

Her removal did not go unnoticed, and one female board member said, "What happened here tonight".

A Louisiana teacher who spoke out about a superintendent's pay raise during a Vermillion Parish school board meeting on Monday was escorted out and handcuffed by a marshal, according to KATC.

It remains unclear why Hargrave was handcuffed.

"This is the most disgraceful and distasteful thing I have ever seen", another audience member said as Hargrave made her way out. A 4-4 deadlock became 5-3 in favor of the new contract as the appointed member voted in favor of the renewal, she said. In a longer video posted on YouTube by a reporter for the Abbeville Meridional, the officer is heard telling Hargrave outside the building that he had given her "many lawful orders to leave". He is heard saying to her that he had given her orders to leave, and Ms. Hargrave, standing in the dark against a vehicle, replied, saying she was "walking and asking you a question".

Told a statement, 'As an organization that advocates for the dedicated school employees of Louisiana, we firmly denounce the mistreatment of Ms. Hargrave, a loving parent and dedicated teacher serving the students of Vermilion Parish.

The superintendent has since stated that there are no plans to press charges against Hargrave. Hargrave voluntarily left the meeting, but as she stepped out into the hallway, the marshal allegedly pushed her and then placed her in handcuffs.

"I am not, you just pushed me to the floor", Hargrave responds.

With the board seemingly uninterested in answering the educator's concerns, an Abbeville city marshal then charged into view, confronted the woman, and demanded she leave the crowded meeting.

In an interview Tuesday, Vermilion Parish School Board President Anthony Fontana stated that he supports the deputy marshal's decision to remove the teacher from last night's school board meeting.

The department said it has received numerous emails and phone calls about the arrest.

Below is the twitter message issued today expressing the same sentiments from LAE.

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.

Aside from these remarks, our association will honor Ms. Hargrave's wishes and refrain from any additional comments at this time, as the case is ongoing.

It is now unclear if the city marshal acted on his own accord or under the direction of someone on the board.
