Tom Linton, Director of Sales and Marketing for Indochina, a high-end, luxury FIT in Los Angeles was recently attacked on Bourbon Street. Linton walked away from the incident with a lacerated mouth and swollen face. His attacker was deranged, and the incident was completely random. After the incident, the French Quarter Hyatt made sure to take Linton straight to the hospital in a luxury sedan. Although an isolated event, there are multiple pickpockets on Bourbon St., and robberies, stabbings and shootings have been known to occur on Bourbon and in some surrounding areas. Tom Linton still plans on coming back to New Orleans, and still maintains that New Orleans is one of his favorite travel destinations.
