Homeowner who pulled gun on high school pranksters arrested

MANDEVILLE-  A homeowner accused of confronting a group of prankster teens with a gun has been arrested.

Craig Scott turned himself in Thursday afternoon for aggravated assault with a firearm and simple obstruction of a roadway.

Scott is accused of chasing the teens in his Mandeville subdivision after catching them throwing toilet paper, and other items, across his property, that he says has caused thousands of dollars in damage.  Police say charges are still possible for some of the teens involved.

“Though he had ample opportunity, Mr. Scott never once called 911 or requested police assistance," the Mandeville Police Department said in a prepared statement. "The end clearly did not justify the means this situation.”

The police department said the case is still under investigation and charges could still be brought against the students responsible for rolling the house, which is technically considered criminal mischief.
