Police who were responding to a report of domestic violence, arrested a Barataria man with a loaded gun instead.
Reports indicate that around 2.15 am on Saturday, officers of the Morvant police station received a report that a man had physically confronted a woman he knew at their home along Eighth Avenue, Barataria.
When officers arrived at the scene, they had cause to stop and search the suspect.
In his presence, they allegedly found and seized a chrome .38mm revolver loaded with five rounds of ammunition.
The officers, shocked by the discovery, arrested the suspect immediately and took him to the Morvant police station where he was further questioned and charged.
