According to reports, a New Orleans area man has been arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot the mayor. Apparently, his frustration with the trash pick-up issue that has persisted across the city is what led to the threat made to 911-operators.
It has been nearly three weeks since Hurricane Ida battered the southeastern portion of Louisiana. And while power has been restored to much of the region, in New Orleans, residents are still waiting for trash pickups to resume.
Reports are saying that a man from Metairie died as he was traveling back home from Texas after evacuating from Hurricane Ida. Authorities say that 29-year-old Timothy Achee was traveling along I-10 near Grosse Tete and Lobdell when an 18-wheeler smashed into stopped vehicles, igniting a fiery cluster on the interstate.
