Sheriff Mike Tregre said Thaddaus Williams, 20, of LaPlace was picked up without incident Monday at his mother’s residence in LaPlace and charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, simple criminal damage to property, home invasion, simple battery and two outstanding attachments for contempt of court.

Tregre said Williams was arrested in connection with a disturbance that occurred Thursday in the 1400 block of Yorktowne Drive.

Deputies responded to the residence at 6:56 p.m. and learned from  a 31-year-old male victim that a gunman pointed a gun at him, chased him and punched the victim in the back of the head. A physical altercation continued outside, Tregre said, adding the gunman fled before deputies arrived.
