A woman has been charged with reckless endangerment for throwing rocks onto a highway.
The woman, Connie Beauvais, 63, is charged with reckless endangerment to the public for tossing a large number of rocks onto Highway 70 Bypass, creating a driving hazard for motorists.
According to McMinnville police officer Trevor Medley, he was dispatched to the area of Angel’s Bridge to investigate motorist reports that a woman was throwing large rocks onto the bypass.
“I found the woman sitting under the bridge,” Medley reported upon his arrival. “I observed hundreds of large rocks in the roadway.”
The policeman asked Beauvais how the rocks got into the roadway. “Are they rocks? They look like rocks,” the woman responded.
Medley took the suspect into custody after her cryptic response. “I placed her under arrest for endangering the public,” the officer revealed, noting he had to close the highway so the rocks could be removed.
The woman did not reveal why she took the time to throw the numerous rocks onto the highway.
She will face hearing Dec. 12 before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke.
