Date of News Release: 01/26/2005
(Henderson, KY) - Five Ohio County teens were charged with multiple counts of criminal mischief on Jan. 25, 2005 stemming from an incident that occurred on Friday Jan. 21,2005.
The teens damaged vehicles that were travelling on the William Natcher Parkway by throwing a variety of objects at the vehicles as they passed by. The objects thrown included eggs and tomatoes, and in a few instances, a paint gun was used. The teens would present themselves long enough to throw objects and then flee the area.
The Kentucky State Police recovered the paintball gun along with paintballs and some eggs and cartons. A Kentucky State Police K-9 unit assisted in the location of evidence and the direction of travel of the teens. At least three semi-tractors suffered a broken windshield as a result to the actions of the teens causing at least $1800.00 damage.
The teens, all juveniles, were cited and released to their respective parents. Juvenile names can not be released in criminal charges.
