A man who allegedly tried to steal a big screen tv from the WalMart in Broussard is also accused of trying to kill a federal agent in the process.
Police tell us 21 year old Deramous Noel of Lafayette ran out of the store with the tv waving a knife and threatening to hurt anyone who tried to stop him.
An off duty Federal Task Force Agent tried to get Noel to stop and surrender but instead Noel jumped in his car and tried to run the agentover before fleeing the scene.
Police say they found Noel at his mother's house in Scott.
Noel is charged with one count of attempted murder of a police officer theft and assault charges tonight.
