LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Lake Charles police arrested several juveniles and cited a dozen adults during a citywide curfew detail between 11 p.m. Thursday, July 27, and 2 a.m. Friday, July 28.

Juvenile detectives and officers stopped and arrested any juvenile - under the age of 17 - out after 11 p.m., a violation of the Lake Charles City Ordinance Section 13-5.1, said Lt. Kevin Kirkum, LCPD spokesman. 

Police also ticketed parents, guardians, or other adults having care or custody of minors who broke curfew, for improper supervision of a minor under Louisiana criminal code 14:92.2 (2)(b).

Officers also cited adults over the age of 17 - not the parents or guardians of the minors - who were with minors after curfew for contributing to the delinquency of a minor under Louisiana criminal code 14:92 (A)(9). 

Police arrested seven juveniles on charges of curfew violation. Officers cited seven adults for improper supervision, and five adults for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The LCPD Juvenile Division randomly conducts the curfew detail, said Kirkum.

Curfew hours for minors are 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. Friday through Sunday.

  • Dog abandoned at local vet gets second chance

    It's unfortunately more common than you would think: pet owners dropping their animals off at the vet and never picking them up. Most offices cannot take in these animals, so they just end up at the shelter.

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
