Firefighter arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm

A Plaquemines Parish firefighter is facing a charge of aggravated assault for pulling a gun on a man.

Corey Zulli, 28, of Belle Chasse, was arrested following a Sept. 14 incident near the Buras Fire Department on Highway 11. The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that Zulli was seen arguing with a woman when another man approached. The two men exchanged words and Zulli allegedly went to his car and returned with a gun and loaded it.

The crowd quickly dispersed after a witness yelled out “he has a gun!” The victim and witnesses at the scene confirmed Zulli never pointed the weapon at anyone.

Plaquemines Fire Superintendent Jonathan Butcher could not be reached for comment on Zulli’s employment status.
