On Sunday morning, a Louisiana dad was arrested for shooting his teenage son in the buttocks during an argument over orange juice.
According to police, 58-year old Eldridge Dukes confronted his 18-year old son over the lack of orange juice in their home in North Baton Rouge. An argument ensued, which quickly escalated after the victim broke a porcelain vase.
At that point, Dukes allegedly grabbed his .357 revolver and chased his son out of the house, firing at him three times. One of the bullets hit his son in the buttocks.
Duke’s wife called police and he was arrested after he confessed to the crime. He is now in jail on charges of attempted manslaughter and illegal use of a dangerous weapon.
The victim was hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.
