Did one Vermilion Parish School Board member threaten board president?

School Board President Laura LeBeouf wanted to know if a certain school board member was threatening her at the end of Monday night’s canceled committee meeting.
After LeBeouf announced that all of the committee meetings were cancelled because of a problem with the agenda, school board member Chris Gautreaux asked LeBeouf who hired security for the school board meetings.
LeBeouf explained to Gautreaux she was advised by legal counsel on how to handle hiring security.
“You better talk to your legal counsel,” said Gautreaux.
