School superintendent Jerome Puyau, the man whose potential pay raise was being discussed in the meeting, said that no charges were filed by him or the board against Hargrave. "I feel like it's a slap in the face to all the teachers, cafeteria workers and any other support staff we have".

When she asked another question, the Abbeville city marshal on duty grabbed her and forced her out, as shown in the video. Handcuffs were later placed on Hargrave in the hallway, as she was removed from the building. The officer orders her to "stop resisting". He is heard saying to her that he had given her orders to leave, and Ms. Hargrave, standing in the dark against a auto, replied, saying she was "walking and asking you a question".

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person of leadership getting any type of raise", Hargrave said.

"I'm not - you just pushed me to the floor", Hargrave responds as the unnamed officer begins to push her towards the exit.

It was during a public comments section of the meeting that the Rene Rost Middle Schools, English languages arts teacher raised her concerns, specifically pointing out teacher salaries and pay rises. Though, after the first time she was called upon, board members did answer some of her questions.

Ike Funderburk, Abbeville's city attorney and prosecutor, said he has reviewed the video and won't be prosecuting her.

"As an organization that advocates for the dedicated school employees of Louisiana, we firmly denounce the mistreatment of Ms. Hargrave, a loving parent and dedicated teacher serving the students of Vermilion Parish", the union's statement said.

The impact of the accident was so brutal that the roof of the auto was completely blown off. Four players died while Yadav and another weightlifter were seriously injured.

Mr Payou's contract was extended for three years by the board during that meeting and includes incentives for performance.

"His job is to make sure that we have orderly board meetings, he knows what our policy is and he knows how to handle it", he said.

Board member Laura LeBeouf, who voted against the contract, said she was "very appalled" by the incident.

'She wasn't talking to you, ' an audience member says. "She's a great teacher".

On Tuesday morning, Hargrave's Facebook page was filled with supportive comments, some thanking her for taking a stand.

A TV news camera crew captured the moment a teacher from Vermilion Parish, Louisiana, was arrested during a school board meeting Monday night, and multiple recordings of the incident have spread quickly on social media.
