NEW INFO: Rock Throwing Suspects Arrested

Three people have been nabbed after deputies say they were throwing rocks at oncoming vehicles. One of those arrested is accused of breaking out his own windshield, in an attempt to divert suspicion away from him.

Wayne County deputies have charged Kimball Gwaltney, Thomas Herring, and David Metcalf, all from Pikeville, with injury to personal property and false report to a police station.

Authorities say on Saturday night they received complaints that several vehicles driving along Highway 117 North were damaged after large rocks were thrown at their windshields.

Deputies say the trio are accused of throwing the rocks from a moving vehicle. Investigators say one of the suspects even broke out his own windshield, filing a police report in an attempt to divert attention away them.

All three were released under a $2,000 bond.

    It's best that these young thugs get some time behind bars. If they do time, they'll think before committing another crime. Suspended sentences will have no effect. Thank God no one was killed or injured.

    Thug origin 1800's from the Hindu word thag, that meant a rogue or cheat, later it meant someone in India who strangled their victim Today it means a cruel or vicious ruffian, robber, or murderer. I think this fits the 3 "men" above and I am white.

    Too much free time is not good for young people. They should have tried out for the baseball team,then they could have thrown all they wanted. Make them work to pay off their damage. Hopefully they will learn from their mistake. We all have done something stupid in our youth to show off or fit in with a group.

    Nothing else needs to be said, because you said it all. Racists ARE ignorant, that's why they ignore when crimes committed by white kids and cry foul about the black kids. The racist whites and racist blacks should leave their comments to themselves, because they wouldn't make the same negative comments to the person's face; they'd be too scared.

    Somebody could've easily been killed by this dangerous behavior! Rocks and windshields don't make good bed fellows. I'm a white man. Where are all my racist contemperaries? If these were black kids, do you not think they'd be all over this story? I would love for race to become of no consequence in these discussions. Everytime someone plays the race card, they prove their ignorance. But, they're either too much a racist or too stupid to recognize it. They'd probably be upset by my comments, but I doubt they'd waste their time reading this story since it doesn't involve "thugs". At least, not in their tiny little minds. It's sad. For all you fine black folks and all you fine white folks out there, I apologize. I'll get down from the pulpit now. I just hope the racists that litter our landscape will get their windshields knocked out. Let these guys bust the white racist's windshields and let 3 black kids bust the black racist's windshields. Now, THAT would be justice.

    I know two of these boys personally. It is not gang related, they are just idiots. They never think of what they are doing, and they will never amount to anything. Now everyone knows wha they are.
