A 23-year-old Atascadero man was arrested Monday on suspicion of shooting metal ball bearings at passing vehicles on El Camino Real.
Atascadero police responded to a report of unknown objects being projected at passing vehicles about 11:43 a.m.
Two people said that they suffered minor cuts from broken glass after the objects hit their vehicles. Three vehicles were damaged, police said.
Patrol officers worked with the CHP, who deployed air and canine units, to find the suspect, Andrew Hart Johnson. Johnson was using a Wrist-Rocket slingshot to shoot the ball bearings, police said.
Johnson was arrested on suspicion of intentionally projecting an object at a vehicle and/or its occupants, and assault with a deadly weapon, both felonies. He was booked into County Jail in lieu of $30,000 bail.
