WEST MONROE, La. - Ouachita Parish deputies have arrested a 55-year-old West Monroe man accused of being in someone else's deer stand.

The News-Star reports Michael Ray Heisler was booked Monday into Ouachita Correctional Center on charges of trespassing and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

An arrest affidavit stated deputies were called to some woods near West Monroe after a victim found Heisler in the victim's deer stand.

Deputies say when they arrived Heisler was intoxicated and standing in waist-deep water. The report stated Heisler dropped his rifle, but told deputies he did not have a gun.

It was unclear whether Heisler has an attorney.
