From the Times-Picayune:
The weapon was one gold lame boot.
The victim: An early-morning patron at a French Quarter bar known for welcoming drag queens and their paramours.
The perpetrator: Walter Black, 41, of Belle Chasse, who had already racked up convictions for robbery and extorting some $10,000 from a priest he was having sex with and blackmailing in 2001.
And it goes on.
