Teacher Arrested at Board Meeting After Criticizing Boss' Raise

Teacher Arrested at Board Meeting After Criticizing Boss' Raise

On Thursday afternoon, hundreds gathered in support of Hargrave at a rally in Abbeville.

The teacher addressed the school board during a public forum and questioned the superintendent's pay raise.

This story is from a paper in Vermilion, Ohio., where the police department received messages regarding Deyshia Hargrave's arrest at Monday's Vermilion Parish School Board meeting.

The American Civil Liberties Union and her teachers' union are investigating the case.

But when Hargrave attempted to dish out another question to the board, Fontana ruled her out of order and an Abbeville city marshal on the premises came forward and asked her to leave. Moments later - after briefly leaving the view of any cameras - she was on the hallway floor with her hands behind her back, being handcuffed and complaining that the officer was hurting her. "It's in the classrooms", Hargrave said during the meeting.

Both the superintendent and the school board president have expressed support for the deputy, although they have said the events leading up to her arrest aren't entirely clear.

On Wednesday, Hargrave told NBC News she was still shaken. She bonded out of jail, and the city said she won't be prosecuted. "Students and teachers love him".

"Today my heart is broken for many reason but my will is not", she concluded. No details were immediately available on the superintendent's pay, benefits or raise.

Hargrave stated, "I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person in a position of leadership getting any type of raise".

Near tears at times, she thanked supporters who stood by her after the arrest and emphasised the need to speak out on important issues. What's more, I'm dismayed at this and you ought to be as well. School officials said they've received numerous death threats in response for allowing the officer's handling of the instructor.

The threats, coming in from places within the U.S. and as far away as England, South America and even Australia, ultimately caused the school board's office to temporarily go on lockdown, CBS News reported. "It is not fair to our family", he said emotionally. After a verbal exchange, school board member Kibbie Pillette said Vermilion Parish School Board President Anthony Fontana beckoned to a school resource officer hired by the board, who confronted Hargrave, ordering her to get her things and go.

"[The comments] wouldn't have had the traction or the notoriety had I not posted", Chief Hartung said.

However, Hargrave added, "They're fine, so I'm fine".

"If our teachers are treated like that, that what does it say for them?" says Alice Stelly, a Kaplan resident who was eyewitness to Hargrave getting handcuffed during Monday's meeting.

The law officer who handcuffed and arrested a Louisiana teacher in videos that sparked Internet outrage was a defendant in a lawsuit alleging excessive force in 2011. "The arrest of middle school educator and LAE and NEA member Deyshia Hargrave is a chilling infringement on her rights but educators will not be silenced".

Hargrave released a video Wednesday saying she hopes people aren't afraid to speak out after seeing what happened to her.
