Mom, son, daughter arrested for rioting in Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE- A woman and her two children, accused of starting a riot in Baton Rouge on New Year's Day, are now behind bars.
Police say Kimberly Dean, 40, phoned 22-year-old James Dean and 21-year-old Devin Dean, and asked them to come help her fight because people were jumping on her.
They say when they arrived to meet their mother at 224 11th Street, she got into the car and they drove around the corner to Convention Street.
The three then got out of the car and started fighting with several people in the street.
Police say James Dean hit at least one person with a metal tool, that's when gun shots were fired, and James and Devin Dean fled the scene.
All three were booked on multiple counts of rioting.
