Vermilion Parish teacher Deyshia Hargrave speaks at Abbeville rally

CBS This Morning

"She is doing an excellent job as a teacher of our community", says Brent Frith, a local business owner, "no one deserves to be treated in such a fashion".

A Louisiana teacher ejected from a school board meeting and roughly handcuffed in a video-recorded arrest after she questioned her superintendent's pay raise said she thinks a lawsuit is likely in the case.

A rally of support for the teacher was being planned for Thursday afternoon.

She was pressing for answers as to why the Superintendent was granted a $30,000 salary raise. "I have never seen a man removed from this room", LeBeouf said during the meeting. It was a huge deal that you not only messaged me, you wore black in support of me, you shared things on social media, you got vocal and that is the most important thing.

In the end, the school board approved Puyau's raise to $140,188 - a salary boost of 27%.

He even went as far as to blame himself for what happened.

Puyau, speaking to NBC News in an interview that aired Wednesday night, said he deserved a raise because the school district ranked 6th in performance in Louisiana, though his pay ranked 57th.

Hargrave found herself in hot water during Monday's meeting when, during a public comment period, she questioned a new contract for Superintendent Jerome Puyau that reportedly gave him a $38,000 pay raise and a auto.

But when Hargrave attempted to dish out another question to the board, Fontana ruled her out of order and an Abbeville city marshal on the premises came forward and asked her to leave.

"It's sad that a woman has to be forcibly, violently removed from a board meeting for people to start caring".

She also included #MeToo in a tweet referencing Franco and Christian Slater but did not make specific claims against either man. Or was she alluding to Franco's previous scandals? And this isn't the first time Franco's been called out.

Public records show base salaries for Vermilion Parish teachers previous year ranged from $39,458 to $58,658.

Harung posted, "The teacher was arrested in Vermilion Parish in Louisiana". Meanwhile, the superintendent of Vermilion Parish Schools says he, his staff and his family have received death threats over the incident.

Hargrave told NBC News she is owed an apology from the marshal who arrested her and from the superintendent.

Puyau hasn't responded to HuffPost's repeated requests for comment.

She was released from jail on bond on charges of "remaining after being forbidden" and resisting an officer, KATC reported. The school board has indicated it does not wish to press charges either.

"Deyshia Hargrave's expulsion from a public meeting and subsequent arrest are unacceptable and raise serious constitutional concerns", Jane Johnson, the interim executive director of the A.C.L.U. of Louisiana, said in a statement. "It's about the teacher, and everybody wants to side on the poor little woman who got thrown out", Fontana told WAFB. Numerous speakers mentioned the line "Nevertheless she persisted" made famous after Senator Elizabeth Warren was cut off by Senator Mitch McConnell during a speech she was giving against then-nominee for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

Fontana has not returned calls for an interview with the AP, but has defended his actions and that of the officer.

Alicia LaSalle is a second-year teacher at the school where Hilts works as a resource officer.

In a lawsuit filed in 2012, Mr. Hilts and another officer in Scott, La., were accused of using excessive force against a 62-year-old man by slamming his head on a concrete slab as he was arrested in 2011.
