Mother and son arrested in connection with post-movie fight

BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - Two individuals were arrested for their involvement in a fight that took place at the intersection of Perkins Road and Bluebonnet Blvd. 

The fight took place on Sunday April 29 around 6:40 p.m. and one man suffered several fractures in his right eye, lacerations on his back and neck and a gash on his head. 

All of the parties involved in this incident sat near each other during a movie at the Cinemark Theater on Perkins Rowe.

The victim was seated near Jerrilyn Hollis throughout the movie and he claims that she was on her phone for the entire movie. 

The victim said he asked Jerrilyn Hollis to get off of her phone during the movie and after the movie was over, Jerrilyn Hollis and Lamount Fernandez Hollis followed them out of the theater. 

The male victim, his wife and step-daughter were in their vehicle when an altercation ensued between the victim, Jerrilyn Hollis and Lamount Fernandez Hollis.

The victim said he had his car window down while waiting to turn and Jerrilyn Hollis sprayed him with pepper spray.

At some point after being sprayed, the victim was punched in the face by Lamount Fernandez Hollis.

The victim got out of his car and tried to defend himself but was beaten until he said he lost consciousness. 

After interviewing Jerrilyn Hollis and Lamount Fernandez Hollis, officers determined based on the injuries the victim sustained that the victim's story was more accurate. 

The mother and son were booked into the EBR Parish Prison on battery charges.
