Jailers say the inmate was alone in a cell at the time of the incident, according to the release.

His identity is being withheld pending notification of family members.

Boating accident leaves one man injured

A boat accident in St. Martin Parish near the Catahoula boat landing injured one man who was air lifted to a hospital, according to KATC-TV.

Officers with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said Teddy Thibodeaux, 36, was operating a personal watercraft when it hit with a partially submerged log. The incident caused Thibodeaux and a passenger to fall from the boat.

According to the agency, Thibodeaux was not wearing a kill switch lanyard, which caused the unoccupied vessel to strike him, leaving him with a severe cut under his left knee.

The passenger in the boat was not injured.

Thibodeaux was flown to Our Lady of Lourdes hospital by Acadian Ambulance helicopter.
