Man charged with terrorizing after DCFS threats
BATON ROUGE – A Baton Rouge man was charged with terrorizing after police said he made threats to shoot everyone in a Department of Children and Family Services office in September.
According to arrest documents, 21-year-old Daniel Lewis became upset when he was not allowed to see his nephew during an arranged parental visit at the Department of Children and Family Services on Sept. 21.
Four witnesses told investigators that Lewis started yelling and made numerous threats that he would go get a gun and shoot everyone in the building.
Lewis was positively identified in a photographic lineup. He was later arrested on an unrelated warrant. At the time of arrest, police note that Lewis admitted to causing a disturbance but denied making any threats.
Lewis was charged with four counts of terrorizing and was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
