Feds investigating Grand Isle man's rant caught on tape

Grand Isle, La. - The FBI has taken on the case of a Grand Isle man who was captured on camera confronting a storm debris assessor who was checking damage after Hurricane Isaac.

Josh Jambon was booked with three counts of simple battery after the incident was caught on cell phone video last year. Federal agents are now looking at the case as a possible hate crime because of the way Jambon refers to the assessor's race during his rant.

One of the alleged victims said Jambon spit on her.

"He did the cruelest thing he could think of to demean me, break me and make me feel less than human," said alleged victim Brandi Worley.

"We're not going to tolerate this conduct here in Louisiana, in the South or the United States," said Worley's attorney, Dexter Woodberry. "That type of conduct should not be tolerated."

Jambon says he is not guilty.
