SHAYNE LESTER:
On Tuesday, December 27 around 7:30 P.M., deputies responded to the 400 block of Silver Street in Bayou Blue where a suspect had allegedly fired a shotgun once into the air, and once into an occupied motor vehicle. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the suspect, Shayne A. Lester (W/M, D.O.B. 04/11/1962) of 406 Silver Street. Through investigation at the scene, detectives learned Shayne Lester was outside his home, allegedly intoxicated, when he began shouting at his neighbors which incited a verbal argument. At some point during the argument, Lester returned to his residence and obtained a shotgun. He emerged from his home with the gun and fired it once into the air. Lester then made his way to the roadside and fired a second shot into the windshield of a sport-utility vehicle which belonged to the neighbor. A woman hiding in the vehicle had her head ducked under the dash and was able to avoid injury, but the truck sustained significant damage. Family members were able to take the gun away from Lester after he shot at the vehicle. Detectives say the investigation into this incident is continuing. A background check revealed Lester had an active Contempt of Court warrant. He was arrested and transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center and booked on charges of Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property, Disturbing the Peace and Contempt of Court. He remains there in lieu of $55,100.00 bond.
