4 jailed for throwing rocks off overpass

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Court records show that all four suspects have been apprehended after large rocks were dropped onto cars from a freeway overpass in Gainesville.

Gainesville police on Aug. 20 announced the arrests of two men accused of dropping rocks on Interstate 985 earlier this month.

The Times reports court records show that two more suspects have also been apprehended.

Police say 18-year-old Juan Peterson and 21-year-old Kyhrie Harris, both of Gainesville, were arrested last week and charged with criminal damage and terroristic acts.

Later, police arrested 19-year-old Gainesville residents Kendrick Perry and Michael Ellis. They also face charges of criminal damage and terroristic acts.

It’s unclear whether any of the suspects have attorneys.

Police say the rocks damaged at least two vehicles. No serious injuries were reported.
