A Louisiana teacher was violently arrested at a public school board meeting Monday night after she questioned her superintendent for giving himself a raise when teachers and administrators were made to go without.

During a school board meeting on Monday, Deyshia Hargrave brought up the issue of teacher salary and a raise that was included in a new contract for the superintendent, according members of the Vermilion Parish School Board. 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 then called on a second time to speak and asked the board another question, KATC reports.

"He's putting her in handcuffs right now", a man can be heard saying on a video taken from inside the meeting room.

Puyau told KATC that the district will not press charges against Hargrave. She has since bonded out.

She had gone years without a raise, so she wanted to know why the superintendent was getting one.

Hargrave was placed in handcuffs before she was escorted from the building.

Hargrave was questioning why the superintendent would get a raise while teachers haven't seen a bump in pay in years, according to the news station.

Ms Hargrave told the board: "you're making our job more difficult" by not addressing valid pay concerns.

Arrest records indicate that Hargrave was booked into the city jail for "remaining after being forbidden" and "resisting an officer", reported KATC, which added that the cooperation of the school system was not required for an arrest and the officer could apprehend her on his complaint.

"What happened here tonight - the way that females are treated in Vermilion Parish - I have never seen a man removed from this room", she said as people in attendance called the incident "terrible".

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.

The 74 was unable to reach the marshal's office or the school district Tuesday morning.
