A Louisiana man was arrested Tuesday after deputies said he drunkenly called his neighbor a “no good piece of s— n—–” and took out a gun.
Thomas Paulk faces a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm, according to an Ouachita Parish arrest affidavit.
Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s deputies called to the 200 block of South Martin at about 6:10 p.m. said when they arrived a resident on the block and a witness told them a man authorities identified as Paulk pulled out a gun.
He also rode a four-wheeler down a private drive, took photos of the neighbor’s property and sent racist and derogatory text messages, the neighbor said in the affidavit.
The neighbor told authorities he feared Paulk would shoot at him because he was yelling.
Paulk continued a “profane tirade” at his neighbors even after deputies read him his Miranda rights, deputies said in the affidavit.
He was booked at the Ouachita Correctional Center on a $3,000 bond, according to the sheriff’s office.
