LAFOURCHE PARISH, La. (WDSU) — The man accused of kidnapping his 4-year-old son is now behind bars.

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested 40-year-old Luke Brown on Sunday.

His son was found safe and unharmed.

Brown is not allowed to be around his son due to a disturbance from March 25.

According to officials, Brown barricaded himself in his car at Nicholls State University and threatened to hurt himself.

The confrontation led to a standoff, but police ended things safely.

Afterward, a family member was granted emergency custody. Deputies said Brown violated that order Saturday by taking the 4-year-old.

Brown faces several charges including simple kidnapping.
