New information released in jug-tossing incidents
PRAIRIEVILLE - Bond was set at $105,000 for three teenagers accused of throwing water jugs at vehicles in Ascension Parish.
Investigators released new information about the cases Monday, adding there were reports of vandalism as early as Aug. 17. Deputies said on that date a driver reported their vehicle was hit by an object on Highway 44 near Rustling Oak subdivision. The woman said she heard a loud noise and noticed water dripping from her vehicle and a side mirror broken off.
Ten days later, two more people reported similar incidents. First, a car was hit on Highway 621 near Mire Road. The driver was injured, deputies said, and needed to be treated by paramedics. The driver said they saw a vehicle approaching with its bright lights on. As it drove along side the victim's vehicle, someone tossed a jug out of the car. The impact shattered the windshield of the vehicle the victim was driving.
Later, a second car was hit on Highway 933 near Magnolia Run subdivision.
Deputies arrested James Edward McCormack, 17, Layne Michael Goodman, 18, and Chance Michael Lambert, 19. Additional charges could be filed, deputies added in a news release Monday evening.
