St. John Parish – On April 5, 2019, Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop B placed a Hammond man under arrest after he shot at an 18-wheeler with a paintball gun. 20-year-old Nicholas V. Scott of Hammond was arrested for various charges as a result of the incident which occurred on I-55 in St. John the Baptist Parish.

The initial investigation began shortly after 11:00 am when LSP Troop B received a call from a motorist traveling north on I-55. The motorist stated that he was driving an 18-wheeler in the right lane, when a gray Ford Mustang passed him in the left lane. As the Mustang passed, he noticed what appeared to be the barrel of a gun emerge from the passenger side window. The victim stated he then heard what sounded like multiple gun shots, and realized his vehicle was being struck.

Upon receiving the information, Troop B and Troop L Troopers began looking for the vehicle, and located it on I-55 near US Hwy 51. Troopers discovered a paintball gun in the vehicle. Nicholas Scott was a passenger in the Mustang, and confessed to firing the paintball gun at the 18-wheeler on I-55. Scott was placed under arrest for LRS 14:37 - Aggravated Assault and LRS 14:56 - Simple Criminal Damage to Property and booked into the St. John Parish jail.

Louisiana State Troopers will remain dedicated to ensuring the safety and security of the people in the state. Troopers wish to remind motorists that if they observe reckless or criminal activity while driving they are urged to dial *LSP (*577) to connect to the nearest LSP Troop.
