Last night deputies handled several incidents involving juveniles participating in “rivalry week” pranks.
Several juveniles and a few adults were arrested.
Deputies worked a motor vehicle accident with injuries where a juvenile driver lost control of their vehicle and flipped.
Thankfully, the juvenile driver received only minor head and neck injuries. The vehicle was involved in a “paintball battle” prior to the accident.
There were complaints of criminal damage to property including a home damaged when someone shot it with paintballs.
We want to keep the juveniles of St. Charles Parish safe, but need your help to do this!
Remind them –
Juvenile Curfew Hours – Curfew is 10 p.m. – 5 a.m. every day for anyone 17 years or younger. There are exemptions to the curfew such as when with a parent, in an emergency situation, or for a legitimate purpose directed by their parent. The curfew applies to public places or in the “streets”. If a juvenile is stopped for being out after curfew, parents will be contacted to pick them up.
Damage to Property – We cannot overlook pranks when they go wrong and cause damage to someone’s property. These are no longer pranks and are considered a crime.
To clarify – The “adults” arrested were also students participating in pranks.
