A Broadmoor man who said he rescued more than 200 residents after commandeering a boat during the flood after Hurricane Katrina is being sued by the boat's owner for taking it "without receiving permission."Boggles the mind.
Humid Haney is not a fan. Meanwhile, YRHT takes a more "modest-proposal-meets-no-tolerance" approach.
So what if I have a boat that might be used to rescue hundreds of people during a flood-- that's none of your business, is it?! Just because I might own a vital commodity, that doesn't give others the right to trespass on my property and take my possessions. If these so-called "heroes" want to do rescues let 'em buy their own boats (or build them, like Samuel White did). Why should they get to stink up my craft with uninvited guests, and scratch it on sunken debris?Here's hoping the judge laughs this one right out of the courtroom (as if New Orleans judges didn't have more pressing matters on their docket....). The plaintiff lists among his grievances: "mental anguish" and "embarassment."
Something tells me that his mental anguish and embarassment are about to increase somewhat...
