Lafont appeared in History Channel’s Swamp People since 2010 and gradually became popular. He came to be known as ‘Trapper Joe’ for his strategies to bait and capture the crocodiles. Lafont is seen with ‘Trigger Tommy’ on the show, who is his stepson but has an everlasting strong bond. They work together to hunt down the beasts and share a wonderful chemistry. The hurricane Isaac hit Louisiana and created destruction beyond imagination in 2012, which left Lafont’s and many other families homeless. That meant a stop to their hunting. Two years down the line Lafont and his son emerged stronger and more determined to fetch the biggest crocs and they surely did that. Lafont uses traditional Cajun tricks learnt from his father which surely gets the best catches! It’s a treat to see him manage his effervescent and unreliable son and get things done the right way.
Lafont approaching 60’s is seen on screen as a sturdy light eyed man wearing khaki outfits. Much of his past life is unknown. He has been divorced and currently has a girlfriend. Recently Lafont came into the media attention due to his heinous act of battery towards his girlfriend. Supposedly he has hit her and tried to burn her with a cigarette butt following an altercation in Lake Buena Vista Hotel located in Florida. This act attracted a lot of negative publicity for the show and disrupted his relationship with his stepson Tommy. He was arrested in Orange County and released after signing a bond. After the big turmoil, Lafont again was faced with a major five car pile-up accident while driving with his son on the Arkansas-Lousiana border highway. The duo was saved miraculously without too many injuries. It seems trouble and bad luck is following Lafont for quite some time now.
