BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL) -- A man that was caught on video swimming in the indoor aquarium at Bass Pro Shop in Bossier City earlier this week has been identified and arrested by police, KTAL reports.
Video captured by Treasure McGraw apparently shows Wise swimming in the fish tank, climbing out of it, then running out of the store.
The store filed a complaint with police Friday after determining there would be costs associated with emptying and cleaning the 13,000-gallon aquarium, which features species of fish local to the region.
According to the Bossier City Police Department, 26-year-old Kevin Wise of Slidell is charged with simple criminal damage to property, a misdemeanor. BCPD says Wise returned to the store, where he was subsequently arrested.
