Abbeville Police Department issues statement after teacher arrest

  • This teacher asked about raises at a school board meeting — and got arrested for

"I feel like it's a slap in the face to all the teachers, cafeteria workers and any other support staff we have".

Moments after warning Deyshia Hargrave, "You're going to leave or I'm going to remove you", an Abbeville city marshal escorted the Rene Rost Middle School teacher out into the hallway, where cameras proceeded to capture the officer pushing her against a wall then onto the floor (full footage below). He escorted her to his squad vehicle and then radioed the Abbeville Police Department to send a patrol unit.

She said that it was unfair that he was being given a performance-based raise when it was the teachers and students who were "doing the work" to meet those goals.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", she said at the meeting.

Fontana, who voted in favor of the final contract, said the board employs a city marshal to provide security during meetings. The Constitution prohibits the government from punishing or retaliating against people for expressing their views, and the fact that a schoolteacher was arrested at a public meeting of the school board is especially troubling. I don't care if the performance targets are met - you're making our jobs even more hard.




In emotional form, a Louisiana center teacher was expelled from a school executive gathering in binds Monday night after she stood up about educator pay.

City prosecutor Ike Funderburk told the news station that school authorities emphasized Tuesday that they were not keen on squeezing charges.

It is unclear if the marshal was acting on his own accord or on the orders of board members. The Abbeville Marshals Office have not returned phone calls seeking comment.

Hargrave was arrested for resisting an officer and remaining after being forbidden, but the school system is not pressing charges, KATC reported.
