Ah, teen hijinks involving underage drinking, drugs, and general prankery.  If only Michael Cera was available to deliver the story in a dry monotoned voice.

Two teenagers were arrested Saturday night for cruelty to juveniles and contributing to the delinquency of juveniles.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Zacharey T. Rushing, 18, who is homeless, and Bryce A. Leon, 17, of the 500 block of Valerie Lane in Haughton, were taken into custody after Rushing drove Leon and three 16-year-old males to Walmart where Rushing stole some alcoholic beverages.  They all then went to another part of the parish and drank the beer.

I’ll assume that the alcohol was in detergent bottles.

In addition to drinking the beer, one of the juveniles consumed Xanax, seven bars of which were recovered from Rushing’s vehicle.  Eventually, one of the juveniles was dumped at Highway 80 and Bellevue Road.  He was left on the sidewalk until he was found by police.

McLovin still remains at large.

Bossier…where skipping school in order to have sex in a public parking garage is considered an excused absence.

A 16-year-old was checked out of Bossier High School by a 22-year-old woman posing as her mother, according to Bossier City Jail booking records.

This came to light after police found the student and the 22-year-old’s brother having sex about noon Jan. 13 in a vehicle in the Louisiana Boardwalk parking garage, Bossier City police Lt. John Nicholson said.

Jose Torres-Rivera, 20, and Maria Torres-Rivera, both of the 1200 block of Waller Avenue in Bossier City, were booked into Bossier City Jail, him on one count of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, her on one count of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

And as is the case with most instances where a man has sex with an undeage girl…the language barrier was a bit of  problem.

“My sticking point is that girl was 16 and the woman who checked her out — I’ve never seen her before — was 20 or something,” Bossier High principal David Thrash said.

The girl’s checkout was further complicated by a language barrier, Thrash and Machen said. Maria Torres-Rivera and the student, who is classified as a English Language Learner, do not speak English. Thrash said the office has a cheat sheet of Spanish phrases to get information required for checkout.

A little family togetherness is all well and good over Holidays, until someone gets drunk and threatens gunplay.

An Elm Grove man was arrested late Christmas Eve night for aggravated assault, domestic abuse battery, and simple battery.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Mack Henry Feaster, 60, of the 100 block of Thomas Jones Road, was playing a card game with family and friends when he began to get loud and started pushing people. The victims started to leave the residence because they knew Feaster was going to get a weapon. They exited the front door, and Feaster opened it with a pistol in his hand. He began waving it around and told them that they should leave or else he would shoot them. The victim then notified the sheriff’s office.

Mr. Feater,  in the keeping with the Christmas spirit, also left the arresting officers a present in their car.

Feaster was also intoxicated during the altercation. He had slurred speech, could not stand on his own and vomited in the deputy’s patrol car en route to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is great and all, but Im not sure real life shootings count toward your Leaderboard totals.

A teenager accidentally was shot with a 12-gauge shotgun while he and other boys were squirrel hunting and re-enacting a video war game about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Bossier sheriff’s office.

The 15-year-old had wounds to his lower abdomen but was alert and talking when he was flown to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where he underwent X-rays, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Baswell said. Doctors were examining surgical options.

Love is a many splendored thing…but sometimes not even that is enough to keep you from stabbing your betrothed in the butt with a steak knife during an argument.

A Haughton woman was arrested this weekend after an argument led her to stab her boyfriend in the buttocks.
According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office,Lisa Scott Nalepa, 48, of the 5200 block of Blue Royale, was taken into custody for domestic abuse/aggravated battery Sunday.

Nalepa was arrested after Bossier Sheriff’s deputies were sent to her residence on a domestic disturbance call. 

When the deputies arrived, Nalepa and her 10-year, live-in boyfriend were still arguing.

The boyfriend told deputies he and Nalepa were arguing over a cell phone when Nalepa stabbed him in the buttocks with a two-inch steak knife.  Deputies say the boyfriend had a visible one-half inch gash on his buttocks.

In Bossier, your run of the mill domestic dispute…

A boyfriend and girlfriend were arrested Monday afternoon for domestic abuse/child endangerment.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Shelbie Leigh Culverhouse, 18, of the 400 block of Maplewood in Bossier City, and Damon Wayne Holliday, 29, of the 6000 block of Old Mooringsport in Blanchard, who have lived together for two years, were taken into custody after they became engaged in a physical confrontation. 

The two fought after Holliday came to Culverhouse’s residence with their one-year-old child in his vehicle.  When Culverhouse attempted to take the child out of the vehicle, Holliday physically removed Culverhouse from the cab of the truck.  They began to struggle and fell into a ditch.

…can just as quickly turn into a scence from Raiders of the Lost Ark, minus the Nazis, of course.

Eventually, Holliday climbed back into the truck and Culverhouse jumped into the bed of the truck, riding in it all the way to Caddo Parish.  As Holliday was leaving for Caddo Parish, a man grabbed onto the vehicle in an attempt to help Culverhouse, but Holliday kicked him in the chest and arm, until he fell off the truck.

When attempting to verbalize the relief efforts associated with recovery from a devastating storm, its important to have the officials on site to quantify the gravity of the project with a metaphorical explanation.  All the better when bears are involved.

“We haven’t whipped the bear, but we’ve got it a lot tamer than what we had in the beginning,” Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen said.

Thankfully, for the residents of Bossier, the bear wasn’t riding on the back of a great white shark, wielding a machine gun and smoking a cigar…


…cause then we’d all be so totally freaking screwed.
