LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A man throwing boulders at cars was arrested on Monday afternoon, according to the Clark County School District's police department.

Officers patrolling near Liberty High School and Steve Schorr Elementary were flagged down by a woman who told them someone had just thrown a boulder at her moving vehicle. She was not injured, police noted.

Police found a trail of boulders in the roadway and saw the man "actively catapulting boulders at vehicles," they said.
