A Louisiana teacher questioned whether the superintendent should receive a raise. Then, she was HANDCUFFED!


The dramatic arrest on Monday — which was caught on video — has drawn outrage in the U.S. and beyond. The Vermilion Parish School Board offices were locked down on Tuesday after receiving threats, board president Anthony Fontana told The Daily Advertiser in Lafayette, La.

The Vermilion Parish teacher, Deyshia Hargrave, will not face charges.

“I have reviewed the video, and I am not going to approve any charges against the teacher,” Ike Funderburk, the city attorney in Abbeville, the parish seat, told KATC. “I have talked with the attorney for the school board. They do not wish to pursue any charges against the teacher.”

Since it was posted to YouTube on Monday, the video has been viewed more than 1.7 million times.
