SHREVEPORT, LA (KMSS) — An argument over a small amount of money quickly escalated into violence Monday evening.
Officials tell KMSS they received a report of battery on the 1900 block of Anna Street at around 11:55 p.m.
Responding officers talked to McDaniel Smith, Jr., who told police he had been hit in the head with a metal pipe by Jonny Lars, Jr., 54, during an argument over $30. Smith would be taken to a local hospital for his injuries.
Investigators found Lars a short time later and he was also taken to a nearby hospital for wounds incurred during the scuffle.
Based on information gathered during the investigation, authorities charged Lars, of Haughton, with one count of aggravated battery. He will be booked into the Shreveport City Jail when he is released from the hospital.
