ROCK THROWER ARRESTED

For the past three months motorists driving along state route 422 & 528 in Geauga County have been dodging rocks that had been coming out of nowhere smashing windshields along those highways. According to the Ohio Highway Patrol and the Geauga County Sheriff’s Department several motorists have reported smashed and cracked windshields from rocks that had struck their cars while they were in those areas.

You may wonder why this story is appearing on TMC NEWS; well The Sheriff’s Department has made an arrest in the case. Elyria resident Glenn Rogers, 40, is accused of throwing things purposely to smash motorists’ windshields. Police say Rogers has been throwing “taconite” rocks from the cab of his dump truck. One person suffered minor injuries after one of the rocks struck their vehicle.

For those of you not familiar with this type of rock: Taconite is an iron-bearing, high-silica, flint-like rock. It is a Precambrian sedimentary rock referred to as a banded iron formation due to the typical alternating iron-rich layers and shale or chert layers. Class dismissed.
