THIBODAUX - Police arrested a juvenile in Thibodaux after they said he threatened someone with what looked like an assault rifle early Saturday morning.
Police said when they tracked down the juvenile they found out the gun was actually an Airsoft rifle meant to look like an AR-15 which had the orange cap on its barrel removed.
Investigators said around 1:30 a.m. Saturday the juvenile stood in the victim's driveway and pointed the rifle at him while he parked his vehicle in the 1800 block of Badt Avenue. Investigators later found the juvenile dressed entirely in camouflage a few blocks away.
Police charged the juvenile with aggravated assault, probation violation, curfew violation, and violation of a city ordinance.
