A Vermilion Parish middle school teacher was removed from a special school board meeting on Monday night in handcuffs, according to a report.

Deyshia Hargrave, a middle school teacher in the Vermilion Parish school system, was videotaped being escorted out of a room and then wrestled into handcuffs by a city marshal on January 8.

It was then that the skirmished happened, in what appeared to be a hallway, while the cameras rolled.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", she said at the meeting. "We work very hard with very little to maintain the salaries that we have". Superintendent Jerome Puyau, who is the beneficiary of the $38,000 raise, told local reporters that the school board was not pressing charges against Hargrave.

"Sir, hold on, I am way smaller than you!"

"I am not, you just pushed me to the floor!" KATC was at the meeting when the incident occurred, the video FULL VIDEO is below.
