New Orleans police made 17 gun arrests along the parade route the first weekend of Mardi Gras (including three cases the first Friday and four more the following Saturday and Sunday), a slight increase in the number during the first weekend of 2010 and 2011, according to a report by Maya Rodriguez of our partners at WWL-TV. One of the men arrested Saturday night on the Uptown stretch of St. Charles Avenue, 22-year-old Carlos C. Williams, has already pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and received a six-month jail sentence, WWL reports:
