Four Jackson teens were formally charged today with throwing rocks off an I-94 overpass in Jackson county. One rock crashed through the window of a passing truck late last month, breaking the arm of a woman passenger.

The suspects are:
Joshua Todd, 18
Gareth Stanley, 18
Justin Presley, 17
Lewis Engle, 19
Adam Engle, 17
Scott Collen, Jr, 17.

All are facing identical charges:
Count 1 Felony Rock Throwing
Count 2 Felonious Assault
Count 3 Misdemeanor Rock Throwing, causing property

Each suspect has been released on $5000 bond.

Jackson police were alerted to the suspects after a tip was called in. The tip was in response to a $2500 reward offered by Hollad based Mulder & Sons' Trucking.

    These loosers need to be locked up, obviously their not smart enough to know better. How stupid to do something that could have turned out so tragic.

    We've all heard of past stories of people getting killed from these rock throwing incidents. I think these males should be charged with attempted manslaughter.

    This is crazy, why wasnt anyone noticing these punks throwing rocks over a overpass. All six of those kids deserve to go to jail. They could have killed someone or caused a major accident. What do the parents of these kids have to say about there horrible kids actions.. Im going to pray for all of them and there families. Also for also for all the peoples vehicles that were hit and that poor ladys whose arm got broke.. very sad. Kids now a day have no respect, its all in how they were raised..

    I hope they get this attached to their adult criminal record. It would be a nice reminder that there are repercussions to their actions.

    I go to school with these six boys, I know what they can do. This immature and senseless act really disappoints me, however it in no way shocks me. I wish the best to those they hurt and I wish the best for these boys, which in my opinion is time, maybe they will learn something.
