BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says a man in an unregistered boat turned out to be wanted on a sex charge.

Spokesman Adam Einck says enforcement agents arrested 26-year-old Jean Luc Williams of New Orleans on a charge of trafficking children for sex.

Einck says the agents were on patrol Sunday in St. Bernard Parish when they saw a man fishing. They checked for compliance with boating regulations. They found that Williams had not registered the boat or completed a required boating education course.

Einck says a background check turned up the warrant sworn out in October in Orleans Parish.

It was not immediately clear whether Williams has an attorney who could comment.
