Church Point Police released the following statement to KATC,

We are not here to prevent young adults from having fun if they want to get together and have paintball wars, please do, but go out in a field or somewhere that property can not be damaged and shoot paintballs at each other who are willing participants, not just innocent people walking or driving. Remember when fun turns into criminal activity then it's no longer just innocent fun. Aggressive enforcement of these incidents will continue.

Church Point officers that are part of the patrol division along with reserve and part-time officers made multiple arrests.

They say childish incidents that harm people will continue to be investigated.
