Man accused of firing at boaters

HOUMA, La. (AP) - A 45-year-old Houma man, angry because boaters were speeding by his home on Bayou Terrebonne, was arrested after he admitted he shot at the boats.

The Courier reports Andy Cotton told police he shot his .357 magnum revolver twice at two boats with a combined 10 people on board. Detectives say nobody was hurt in the incident Friday and neither boat was damaged.

Police say Cotton was angry because he said both boats were speeding in the "no-wake" zone.

Cotton was booked with 10 counts aggravated assault and was released from the Terrebonne Parish jail after posting a $50,000 bond.
