A Lehighton man is charged with dropping large rocks, one of them weighing an estimated five pounds, onto vehicles from his third floor apartment along Route 209 in the borough.
Two of the vehicles were moving when the rocks struck their windshields. An elderly couple was in one car, and a woman and young children were in the other car.
Police said the man, Matthew Fredrick Palenzuela, told a doctor he tossed the rocks because he was depressed.
Palenzuela, 66, of 178 S. First St., had a hearing scheduled Monday before District Judge Edward M. Lewis of Jim Thorpe.
