Fuller, for possession of marijuana.Fuller, of the 3500 block of McWillie Avenue in Shreveport, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
Detectives were dispatched and immediately began their investigation. Investigators learned that Eric Taylor had apparently been involved in an ongoing dispute with some other male subjects.
