KENNER, La. - A Thibodaux man has been arrested after allegedly shooting out the windows of a car during a high-speed chase in Kenner on Wednesday.

When the man turned onto I-10 eastbound, Joseph followed and pulled up alongside him at "a high rate of speed,” according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office.
