Three teens arrested at Boardwalk Saturday

One 15-year-old and two 14-year-old girls refused to leave after curfew

BOSSIER CITY. La. - Three teenage girls were arrested at the Louisiana Boardwalk this weekend, after refusing to leave, according to Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.

 

Two of the girls, one 14 and the other 15 were from Vivian and the other was a 14-year-old female from Oil City.

 

Juveniles 16 years of age and younger are prohibited from being on the Boardwalk property after 8 p.m. unless they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian 21 years of age or older.

 

Bossier City Police took the three into custody and charged them with Remaining After Being Forbidden.

 

They were transported to Ware Youth Center in Coushatta by deputies with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office. 

 

In addition to the remaining after forbidden charge, the Oil City teen was charged with Disturbing the Peace (Language) and Resisting an Officer.

 

“We will not put up with any nonsense at the Boardwalk as the Sheriff’s Office works closely with the Bossier City Police Department and Boardwalk officials who are stepping up their enforcement of their Parental Escort Policy,” Whittington said. 

 

“Public safety is our top priority, and we will continue to help maintain a safe environment here in Bossier Parish.

 

“I encourage parents to have a stern conversation with their children about responsible, respectful and law-abiding behavior and the consequences of breaking the law,” Whittington emphasized.  “It’s as simple as that.”
