Bourg man threatens to shoot deputy

A Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s deputy responded to the 4000 block of Kerr Drive in Bourg to investigate a suspicious situation on Jan. 11, around 12:18 a.m. Upon arrival the deputy encountered the suspect, identified as Leonard Gordon Naquin, 56, acting and speaking erratically, and an ambulance was requested.


When the deputy attempted to ascertain if the Naquin was armed, he resisted and ran into the residence, threatening to shoot the deputy. Naquin then appeared at the rear entrance to the residence, displaying a handgun, and waving a flashlight to determine the location of the deputy.


When backup arrived, Naquin came around to the driveway and submitted to orders to get on the ground and was arrested. A .357 magnum revolver loaded with hollow-point bullets was recovered, as was a glass pipe containing residue. 


Naquin was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, where he was found in possession of three cocaine rocks. Naquin was booked for aggravated assault on a police officer with a firearm; possession of a Schedule II controlled substance; possession of drug paraphernalia and taking contraband into a penal institution. He remained jailed Saturday afternoon in lieu of a $225,000 bond.
