According to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, the reality star was arrested Friday night after allegedly firing a gun at a shrimp boat while alligator hunting

The shooting happened in Bayou Chene when the shrimper refused to slow down. Chase then fired shots at the boat in defense, because the shrimper would have sunk his boat. The Swamp People star was charged with illegal discharge of a weapon.

I don't know much about shrimping, gator hunting, or boats, but I'm going to go ahead and guess that shooting at someone for speeding is not a legitimate reason. I do have to give him a little slack though. I mean, the dude has grown up with his father screaming "choot 'em" at him. He just took Troy Landry's advice a little too literally in this situation.
