Slidell Shrimp Boat Captain Arrested After Altercation

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a Slidell-area man Wednesday afternoon
(September 18, 2019) after an altercation between two shrimp boat captains in the area of Rigolets Pass near Geoghegan Canal.

The captain of one of the boats, Casey Russell (35) of Slidell, had become angry after locating another individual shrimping “in his spot.” Russell had deployed his boat’s anchor and circled the victim’s boat, causing the anchor to hook the boat’s nets and lines. Russell then dragged the boat, causing it to sustain significant damage and take on water.

Russell was arrested and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail for Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property.

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries assisted in the investigation and also cited Russell for  Interfering with a Commercial Fisherman.
