Dad Shoots Teen Son in Butt Over Empty Orange Juice Carton: Police
A Louisiana family's argument about orange juice ended in bloodshed and an arrest for attempted manslaughter Sunday morning after a father allegedly shot his teenage son in the ass with a .357 revolver.
Sometime Sunday morning, Eldridge Dukes allegedly confronted his 18-year-old son about the lack of orange juice in their Baton Rouge home. The Advocate reports that the fight escalated—a vase was reportedly broken—and eventually spilled into the street, where Dukes allegedly chased after his son and shot at him three times. The son was struck once in the butt.
Dukes' wife called the police, who arrested her 58-year-old husband after he reportedly confessed. The son was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
