Deyshia Hargrave, a English language arts teacher at Rene Rost Middle Schools was put in handcuff’s during Monday night’s school board meeting..
Hargrave was booked into jail after resisting an officer. She addressed the board to discuss teacher salaries and pay raises. After Hargrave posed several questions, board president Anthony Fontana ruled Hargrave out of order, warning her that the public comment section was not for a question-and-answer session.
Hargrave was called upon a second time for comment. After posing another question, an Abbeville city marshal on duty at the meeting escorted Hargrave out of the meeting. Handcuffs were later placed on Hargrave in the hallway, as she was removed from the building.
The deputy marshal is a school resource officer who works in Vermilion Parish schools.
