Man Shoots Son During Argument Over Lack of Orange Juice

This gentleman from Baton Rouge, Louisiana had no orange juice to make his Sunday morning mimosa or screwdriver (or something) so he shot his son in the butt.
A Baton Rouge man was arrested early Sunday after he confessed to shooting his 18-year-old son in the buttocks during an argument over orange juice. Eldridge Dukes, 58, and his son were fighting about the lack of orange juice in their north Baton Rouge home, according to a Baton Rouge police arrest report. The squabble escalated when the victim broke a porcelain vase, and Dukes grabbed his .357 caliber handgun, family members told detectives. Dukes chased the victim out of the house and down the street, firing at least three times. He hit the victim once in the buttocks, detectives said. The victim was taken to Baton Rouge General Mid-City Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the report says. The victim’s mother called police, and Dukes confessed to the shooting, authorities said. Dukes, 9638 Mesa Verde Drive, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of attempted manslaughter and illegal use of a dangerous weapon.
