    Yep, I knew it. They’ve been doing this for at least a year. It was two males. They stand on the hill overlooking the highway and throw rocks down. When they missed my car and I flipped a “U-turn” to shine some light up at them they ran. I tried to go chase them down but they were gone. Hope these idiots get caught.
