Grand jury indicts Port Arthur man for deadly conduct

A Jefferson County grand jury indicted a Port Arthur man for deadly conduct March 8 stemming from an August 2016 incident during which police say the man fired recklessly into a crowd of people at an apartment complex, according to information from the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. 

Jacoby Anthony Lewis, 25, also known as "Joker," is facing third-degree felony charges for firing approximately four shots in the direction of a large group of people at Louis Manor Apartments at 1300 Joe Louis Ave. in Port Arthur. Police report "several witnesses" identified Joker as the person who fired the shots. 

If convicted, Joker faces serious jail time, from two to 10 years in prison, and a fine of up to $10,000, which is no laughing matter. 

An indictment is not indicative of guilt.
