Louisa police nab man after shot fired
by Roberta Blevins

LOUISA —A Louisa man was arrested last week and charged with wanton endangerment after allegedly firing a .22-caliber pistol in the direction of a juvenile.

Robert Kitts, 44, was arrested after a round was found in the driveway of the juvenile, police said. He was also charged with adult kidnapping when, according to a press release from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, he held Jeffrey Russell at gunpoint and made him drive to the juvenile’s home.

The pistol was recovered at Kitts’ home after a search warrant was executed, the release said.

The case is under investigation by Deputy Scott Randall.

Other weekend arrests included:

• Frank Marchesini, 46, of Louisa, charged with menacing and alcohol intoxication after allegedly going to his girlfriend’s home and threatening her.

• Jack L. Berry, 38, of Louisa, arrested after the sheriff’s office received two separate complaints that he started verbal arguments with his neighbors. Deputy Tim Ellis said he found Berry hiding on a hillside and arrested him for his own safety.
