Teacher handcuffed by officer at school board meeting

Louisiana Teacher

The director of Vermillion Parish schools, of which Rene Rost Middle School is a piece of, told KATC-TV that the school board won't squeeze charges against Hargrave.

After the board approved the raise, Hargrave was again recognized by the board and voiced her frustrations. She wasn't making a fuss, she was pointing out something he didn't want public, they used arrest tactics to remove her when she was already leaving and that's illegal'. Next, she is seen on the hallway floor, being handcuffed behind her back and then escorted from the building. Ms. Hargrave asked the board, as the marshal tried to grab her arm.

The superintendent said that the board would not press charges against Hargrave, but records showed that she was booked in jail, KATC reported.

She was called on twice during the public comments section of the meeting and was told it was not a time for Ms Hargrave's several questions regarding teachers' salaries. The Abbeville Police Department did not arrest the teacher. She has since bonded out.

The woman's removal follows comments she made addressing Vermilion Parish superintendent, Jerome Puyau being awarded a $38K pay rise.

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

The Louisiana Association of Educators posted a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon noting that Hargrave is a member and has spoken to the organization's attorney.

Forecasters issued flash flood warnings and predicted the cold front with powerful winds could bring several inches of rain. Only about a half-inch per hour is enough to start mudslides, said Robbie Monroe of the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

We will continue to support the right of every single school employee to take an interest in, and ultimately stand up for, the best interests of their schools and their students.

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

The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana said it was investigating as well.

Hargrave was warned that public comment was not for questions. The organization says the actions of the officer as "unacceptable and raise serious constitutional concerns".

Longstanding divisions on the eight-member school board preceded the meeting, according to LeBeouf and board member Kibbie Pillette, both of whom said that a new contract for Puyau give him the opportunity to earn as much as $38,000 more per year, while the board hasn't raised teacher salaries in more than a decade.

It is now unclear if the city marshal acted on his own accord or under the direction of someone on the board. KATC was at the meeting when the incident occurred, the video FULL VIDEO is below.
