Recommended Posts

A 45-year-old Carson City man was arrested Saturday for gross misdemeanor destruction of property and misdemeanor assault after allegedly throwing a rock at a tow truck, shattering the windshield, according to a Carson City Sheriff's Office booking report.


Deputies were dispatched to the area of South Carson Street and Colorado Street for a vehicle injury report. Dispatch advised the suspect threw a rock at the reporting party's vehicle that resulted in a shattered windshield, according to the report.


Deputies located the man, matching the description of the suspect, walking westbound on Rhodes approaching Curry Street. A deputy activated their emergency lights and sirens to stop the man, who turned around and raised his middle finger, the report states. The man then turned around and continued walking westbound on Rhodes.



An additional deputy responded and the deputies made contact with the man, who became argumentative and began to use curse words directed at the officer, the report states.


The deputy asked the suspect why he flipped him off. The suspect ignored the deputy and said he didn't know who the deputy was, even though the deputy had red and blue emergency lights and a siren activated.


The man was detained. During a search for weapons, officers located a fixed bladed knife in the man's right rear pant pocket. Meanwhile, deputies met with the reporting party who showed them his vehicle, a tow truck, with a large impact point on his windshield that caused a large shatter across the windshield.


The reporting party stated the suspect threw the rock at his windshield and that it was completely unprovoked. The victim advised he exited his tow truck and asked the man why he did it. The victim stated the suspect lunged at him and attempted to hit him, the report states.


The victim advised he wanted to pursue charges for destruction of property and assault. Damage from the windshield was valued at $400. The suspect was booked for suspicion of gross misdemeanor destruction of property and misdemeanor assault. Bail: $3,137.
