Did one Vermilion Parish School Board member threaten board president?

Gautreaux, LeBeouf exchange words at end of board meeting

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.
“You threatening me, Mr. Gautreaux?, asked LeBeouf.
“I did not threaten you. Did I threaten you?” said Gautreaux.
“Are you threatening me?,” LeBeouf asked again.
“Did you hear a threat?” Gautreaux replied.
“I want to make sure,” she said.
“Did you hear a threat?” said Gautreaux. “You will be the first to know if I am threatening you, Mrs LeBeouf.
“This is ridiculous because we made these people come here,” he said.
