A father shot his son after the two got into an argument about orange juice.

The father of Louisiana, was arrested after shooting his 18-year-old son in the behind during the fight over orange juice, police said.

58-year-old Eldridge Dukes faces charges of attempted murder and illegal use of a weapon, police in Baton Rouge said.

The incident occurred early Sunday morning, after the father and son argued over the lack of orange juice at their home, according to Baton Rouge police spokesman Corporal Don Coppola.

Coppola said that the son damaged the house and broke a porcelain vase. That is when the father armed himself with a gun.

The father chased his son out the front door. He fired several shots, striking the teen once in his behind, Coppola said.

The teenager was taken to a hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening.

Dukes was arrested and his bail was set at $60,000.
