Bourg man arrested for choking juvenile

BAYOU BLUE, LA (WVUE) - Lafourche Parish deputies said they arrested 31-year-old Alex Hebert of Bourg on Tuesday.

Officers responded to a disturbance at a home on Louise Lane in Bayou Blue at 8:45 p.m. They learned that Hebert, who was staying at the residence, had been involved in a verbal altercation with a teenager at the home. During the altercation, deputies said Hebert pointed a sword toward the teen in a threatening manner and threatened to kill him, but the juvenile's mother separated the two.

Deputies said they also learned that Herbert and the juvenile were involved in another altercation Saturday during which Hebert hit the juvenile in the throat with his hand and began choking him. However, deputies said they were not notified about that incident until the one on Tuesday.

Hebert was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center with cruelty to a juvenile with force or violence and aggravated assault.
