LDWF Cites Two Men for Operating Vessel with Suspended Driver’s License

Release Date: 12/31/2014

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents made two alleged operating a vessel with a suspended driving license during the past month in Jefferson and Orleans Parish.

On Dec. 7 at 8:50 p.m. in Bayou Segnette agents cited Derrick J. Margiotta, 25, of Westwego for operating a vessel with a suspended driving license, no running lights, no possession of a mandatory boating safety education card, expired vessel registration, and failing to change ownership of the vessel to himself within 45 days of purchase.

On Nov. 24, agents cited Patrick C. Seiner, 23, of Baton Rouge, in Chef Menteur Pass for operating a vessel with a suspended driving license.

Both Seiner and Margiotta had their driving privileges suspended for previous Driving While Under the Influence (DWI) convictions.

Anyone cited for a DWI on the water or on the road will lose his or her driver's license and boating privileges for the specified time ordered by the judge in the case.  Also, each offense of operating a vehicle or vessel while intoxicated counts toward the total number of DWI crimes whether they happened on the water or road.

The LDWF Boating Safety Program teaches a mandatory boating safety education course for anybody born after Jan. 1, 1984 who operates a vessel in excess of 10 horsepower.  For a schedule of courses, visit www.wlf.louisiana.gov/boating.

Operating a vessel while under license suspension brings a $900 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail.  Operating a vessel at night with no running lights, no possession of the boating education card, expired vessel registration and failing to change ownership of the vessel each carry up to a $50 fine and 15 days in jail.

LDWF Agents Arrest Ascension Parish Man for Boating Hit and Run

Release Date: 08/15/2014

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents arrested an Ascension Parish man this morning, Aug. 15, for his alleged involvement in a boating hit and run.

Agents arrested Thomas J. Amorello, 32, of the St. Amant area, for felony hit and run, negligent injury and reckless operation of a vessel and booked him into the Livingston Parish Jail.

Agents began investigating a hit and run between two ski boats on the Amite River Diversion Canal on July 26 in Livingston Parish.  The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. when a ski boat was rear ended and ran over by another ski boat allegedly operated by Amorello.  The three passengers of the boat that was run over were treated for minor injuries and released.

Using eyewitness accounts of the description of a ski boat that sped through a no wake zone just north of where the hit and run took place near the Tiki Hut, agents were able to identify and track down Amorello’s boat on July 28 at his residence.  Amorello’s boat matched the description and also had damage to the hull.

Agents seized Amorello’s boat and the victim’s boat and brought them to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for further investigation.  The crime lab was able to make a direct match between the damage sustained on both vessels and determined that Amorello’s ski boat was involved in the hit and run.

Felony hit and run brings up to a $5,000 fine and 10 years in jail.  Negligent injury carries up to a $500 fine and six months in jail.  Reckless operation brings up to a $200 fine and 90 days in jail.

LDWF Agents Investigating Fatal Boat Incident on Amite River

Release Date: 07/02/2014

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents are investigating a fatal boating incident on the Amite River in Livingston Parish on July 1.

LDWF agents were notified about a single vessel incident around 6:30 p.m. involving a husband and wife of Livingston Parish.

It is believed at this time that the 17 foot surface drive vessel operated by Richard Ledoux, 58, hit a tree near the bank in the Killian area near Pete’s Landing.  The collision with the tree resulted in the death of Deborah Ledoux, 59, and injuries for Richard.

Richard was airlifted to the Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge for treatment.  It is not suspected that his injuries are life threatening at this time.

Deborah's body was turned over to the Livingston Parish Coroner’s Office.  An autopsy will be performed to determine a cause of death.

LDWF will be the lead investigative agency for this fatal boating incident.
