Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk has announced authorities have arrested two teenagers in connection with a series of incidents last week in which objects were thrown at car windshields.

There were reports of such incidents in both Hamilton County and Catoosa County between Wednesday and Friday.

Sheriff Sisk says several vehicles and mailboxes were damaged by items thrown from a passing vehicle. In some cases, windshields were shattered and drivers suffered minor cuts.

The incidents happened in the Graysville/East Brainerd areas of Catoosa and Hamilton Counties.

On Friday, investigators with the Catoosa County Sheriff's Department identified two suspects: 17-year-old William Robert Broom and 18-year-old Brett David Scott, both from Ringgold. Both were booked into the Catoosa County Jail on four counts of criminal damage to property first degree and criminal trespass.

Sheriff Sisk says Catoosa County investigators are now working with investigators from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and Chattanooga Police Department on this case, and more charges could come soon.

Sheriff Sisk says investigators are now looking into the possibility that there may be more suspects.
