NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – A Houma man was arrested for allegedly catching too many sharks and possessing methamphetamine, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.
Officers said Anouda Lirette, 44, was arrested July 26 in Oyster Bayou, south of Lost Lake in Terrebonne Parish. Officials say he was in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, as well as a small shark.
Agents are said to have seen Lirette throw another shark on board because he was over the limit.
He was sent to Terrebonne Parish Prison. He faces more than $5,500 in fines and two years in prison.
