Abbeville Attorney and Vermilion Parish School Board President Anthony Fontana spoke out after a teacher was arrested during a school board meeting. Videos of the altercation have gone viral and have been seen millions of times since the incident on Monday night. In an interview with KPEL News, Fontana stands by the rules that govern the way school board meetings are held.

The standout quote from the interview is the comparison he made between teachers in the school board meeting to students in the classroom. See below for the video of the incident that ended with teacher Deyshia Hargrave being arrested by an Abbeville City Marshal.
