On September 19, 2013, Floyd Tillman, 26, pleaded not guilty to attempted second-degree murder after ramming the gates of the state penitentiary at Angola with his car, while guards opened fire at him. Tillman had taken his daughters, ages 8 months and 2 years, from Terrebonne Parish. He then drove to the prison and argued with guards about taking a tour. After being told many times there were no tours that day, he began ramming the prison’s gates. It is anticipated that Tillman’s defense attorney will seek a mental health evaluation for his client.
