According to the arrest affidavit, a deputy with the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office was patrolling after 10 p.m. Tuesday night when he saw a suspicious vehicle parked on the 700 block of Mondy Road. The vehicle was called in, and it was reportedly registered to Mitchell L. McWain, 31, of 502 E. Colorado Ave.

The show, which started around 9:30 p.m., consisted of about $10,000 worth of sponsor-funded fireworks said to be visible throughout the city. Many, however, drove closer to the church to get a better view.
