NAPOLEONVILLE — A Napoleonville man was arrested Monday after firing shots in his neighborhood, then tossing away a package of crystal meth as investigating officers approached, Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said.
Officers responding about 6 p.m. Monday to reports of shots being fired in the 3500 block of La. 1 in Napoleonville found Jayson Duet there. He showed them his .22 rifle nearby, where drug paraphernalia was also in clear view, Waguespack said in a news release.
