NAPOLEONVILLE — A Belle Rose man was ordered to serve four years in state prison after pleading guilty to two unrelated instances of gun play in Assumption Parish seven months apart, authorities said Friday.
Prosecutors in Assumption had accused Jamaul Myles, 23, in a shooting over a gas station dispute in an August 2013 incident in which no one was injured and also in pointing a gun at a woman whom he had tried to hit with his vehicle in March 2014.
In a deal with prosecutors, Myles, 179 Virginia St., pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Judge Jessie LeBlanc, of the 23rd Judicial District, sentenced him Wednesday to three concurrent four-year prison sentences, prosecutors with the judicial district said in a statement.
In the Aug. 3, 2013, incident, prosecutors said, Myles tried to fight with a man at a Texaco gas station on La. 70 Spur in Plattenville. The man left as Myles was digging for something in his vehicle, but Myles followed him to his home on Walker Street in Bertrandville.
Myles approached the man’s yard, where the man was standing with other people. Myles shot in their general direction three or four times, prosecutors said. He later was arrested.
On March 18, 2014, Myles reportedly was driving up and down Klotzville Lane in Belle Rose swerving at a woman. At one point, he pulled into a driveway and the woman told deputies she saw him tampering with a gun and then drove by again, pointing the gun at her.
Sheriff’s deputies later found a .380-caliber handgun in his vehicle that matched the woman’s description of the weapon, prosecutors said.
