Three teens arrested after school vandalism
WATSON - Sheriff's deputies arrested three Livingston Parish teens today after they said they broke into the old Live Oak High School fieldhouse and started a fire.
Investigators said the teens, two of which were 13 and one of which was 14, are all students in the Live Oak School District.
Deputies said they were called to the school around 6:30 a.m. and found the field house and two rooms in the main high school building had been broken into. They said the rooms had been spray-painted, windows and equipment had been broken, fire extinguishers had been emptied and a fire had been started.
