Hammond Man Charged with Shooting Paintball Gun at Semi

Last Friday (April 5, 2019), Troopers with Louisiana State Police arrested Nicholas V. Scott (20) of
Hammond 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 investigation reveals that a driver of an 18-wheeler traveling north on I-55 called LSP. The driver of the 18-wheeler stated that, as a gray Ford Mustang passed him, 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.

Troopers from Troop B and Troop L located the vehicle and discovered a paintball gun in the vehicle. Scott, a passenger in the Mustang, reportedly confessed to firing the paintball gun at the 18-wheeler on I-55. He was charged with Aggravated Assault and Simple Criminal Damage to Property.
