An English language arts teacher at Rene Rost Middle School was arrested during the school board meeting. Deyshia Hargrave was addressing the teacher salaries and pay raises. Board President Anthony Fontana ruled Hargrave out of order, warning her that the public comment section was not for a question-and-answer session.
After posing another question, an Abbeville city marshal on duty at the meeting grabbed Hargrave and removed her from the meeting. Handcuffs were later placed on Hargrave as she was removed from the building.
The Marshall on duty stated that she was arrested due to her resisting.
