Just after midnight on Wednesday, Aug. 14, Scott Police were called to Cowboy's nightclub because a man rode his horse inside the bar. He then allegedly lassoed a man and dragged him through the parking lot.

Scott Police say James Rene Mouton, 26, had his horse in a trailer in the parking lot of the night club. After becoming drunk, police say Mouton unloaded the horse and rode it into the club. Mouton then allegedly rode the horse out of the bar and onto North Ambassador Caffery Parkway, just North of Interstate 10.

We're told Mouton went back into the bar. Police say a concerned bar patron escorted Mouton and his horse out of the building. Once outside, Scott Police say Mouton roped a 47-year-old man using a lasso. The man was allegedly dragged through the parking lot by Mouton, the horse, and his lasso. Scott Police tell us the man had minor injuries to his hands. 

Police say after the episode, Mouton brought the horse to his parents' house on Renaud drive then walked back to the bar on foot.

Scott Police arrived on scene and say Mouton tried to hide from them. Police were able to wrangle Mouton, and they tell us he threatened to retaliate against them when they were off duty.

Mouton was arrested and charged with Disturbing the Peace, Remaining after Being Forbidden, Second-Degree Battery, Public Intimidation and Retaliation. He was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. His first court date is set for Friday, Aug. 16.
