Washington state troopers on Tuesday afternoon arrested another person who they believe was throwing rocks and debris at cars on the freeway — a recent trend officials say has become a growing problem in the Seattle area.

Authorities arrested the 41-year-old man from Seattle for allegedly throwing rocks and debris at seven vehicles going west on Interstate 90 near Rainier Avenue around 4 p.m., Trooper Chase Van Cleave said Tuesday. One of the three drivers who remained on scene reportedly started chasing the suspect after their vehicle was hit, Van Cleave said.

The State Patrol has been responding to a large number of similar rock-throwing incidents in the past month. As of last week, troopers had responded to 161 rock-throwing reports in King County in 2021. Of those, 44 involved someone throwing debris from an overpass, while 117 involved debris thrown from the side of the freeway, a State Patrol statement said.

One incident in June left a driver on I-90 with a serious cut on his face.

Trooper Rick Johnson said last week that in 2020, the county saw 133 rock-throwing reports total.

The State Patrol has made a handful of arrests in connection with the rock-throwing, but Van Cleave said Tuesday these types of crimes are sometimes difficult to address.

I started taking light rail whenever I have to go in to work downtown. I’m not getting plastered by some rando on the freeway. :neyde:

This has been legit scary. I was nervous last time I had to drive to the city. And even though there have been arrests, it keeps happening, so it's obviously at least a handful of people. Although they're characterized as rocks, many instances have been large chunks of concrete, even objects like bikes too.
