No charges will be filed against a Vermilion Parish teacher who was arrested at a school board meeting last night.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person in a position of leadership getting any type of raise, I feel like it's a slap in the face for the teachers, the cafeteria workers or any other support staff we have", Hargrave is seen saying in the video posted to YouTube.

Hargrave received a warning from the board that it was public comment only, not a question and answer session, according to KATC.

The teacher was called on a subsequent time and asked the board another question, according to the report. She is heard responding: "I am not - you just pushed me to the floor".

The superintendent of Vermillion Parish schools, of which Rene Rost Middle School is a part of, told KATC-TV that the school board will not press charges against Hargrave. She was later released on bond.

After the board approved the raise, Hargrave was again recognized by the board and voiced her frustrations.

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

Fontana, who voted in favor of the final contract, said the board employs a city marshal to provide security during meetings.

The Abbeville town marshal's office, which made the arrest, the superintendent's office and the school board president all declined further comment on the incident. According to news site Education Week, "a survey of more than 1,800 public and private school teachers conducted in the 2015-16 school year" showed that the average American educator had to spend $600 of their own money in order to provide adequate school supplies for their students.

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.

Requests for comment from Hargrave and Puyau were not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.
