La. Family Fights at Ala. Church Over Gas Money

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The stress to find gas money to return to Louisiana has led to a family fight in a Montgomery church parking.

Two sisters staying at the Vaughn Park Church of Christ shelter began fighting Wednesday because one would not give the other more gas money. Samantha Williams and her older sister, Roxanna, caravanned to Alabama from Louisiana to escape Hurricane Gustav.

During the scuffle, Roxanna's boyfriend, Don Duplessis, punched Samantha and sliced two tires of her SUV with a knife.

Montgomery Police charged 27-year-old Duplessis with harassment.

Church officials say many evacuees have exhausted their money and need funds to return home. They say they will replace William's two flat tires.
