GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Five teenagers face felony charges after throwing a log at a Gwinnett County Police cruiser Monday evening.
It happened at around 9:30 p.m. while the officer behind the wheel drove to work for his morning watch shift.
The officer was driving west on Ronald Reagan Parkway just past Webb Gin House Road when he noticed something hanging across the road. As he slowed down, he saw something being thrown at his car. He swerved, but the object hit his hood and headlight, according to Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Michele Pihera.
The officer got out of his car and saw duct taped stretched across the road's center guardrail next to several large pieces of wood. He also saw a log stuck in his cruiser's broken headlight.
