GEISMAR, La. (BRPROUD) – A 31-year-old man is behind bars in connection with the accidental shooting of a six-year-old at a Family Dollar in Ascension Parish.
Arthur Robertson has been in the Ascension Parish Jail since November 3 and is facing these charges:
- Contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile
- Illegal use of a controlled substance in presence of a juvenile
- Improper supervision of a minor by parent
