A teacher in Louisiana was removed from a school board meeting Monday night and put in handcuffs after bringing up teacher salaries. 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". The video then shows the woman on the floor in the hallway, where she is being handcuffed behind the back by the marshal.

A Louisiana teacher who was forcibly removed from a school board hearing in a viral video clip was booked on two crimes and bonded out of jail Tuesday morning, court documents show. The disturbing incident took place after Hargrave asked school board members to justify the massive raise while teachers and school employees had reportedly gone without a pay hike in years.

"I am not - you just pushed me to the floor".

"We are doing the work, the students are doing the work", Ms. Hargrave continued.

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

As indicated by KATC-TV, Hargrave tended to the school board amid people in general remarks segment of the gathering concentrated on educator compensations and increases in salary.

Several in the crowd can then be heard saying "yes, it is", in support of Hargrave.

Outside the building, the marshal tells her she is being arrested for refusing to leave and resisting arrest.

Hargrave was called upon a second time for comment.

'Sir, do not, ' she says as he touches her.

Hargrave continues to ask her question when a city marshal approaches her and tells her she needs to leave.

"I do believe in the First Amendment, and everyone should be able to go to a school board meeting and express how they feel", she said.

Aside from these remarks, our association will honor Ms. Hargrave's wishes and refrain from any additional comments at this time, as the case is ongoing. It is every citizen's right to speak up for their beliefs'.

The station also reported that it is unclear whether the marshal acted on his own volition or was instructed to arrest Hargrave by a school board member.
