An Anniston man was in jail Monday charged with throwing a rock at a police car with an officer inside.

Police say Justin Kitchens, 32, of Anniston threw a rock at the hood of the police cruiser at around 12:30 Sunday morning. The officer driving the car was uninjured, said Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks.

Sparks said the officer was responding to another call when he saw Kitchens throw a rock into the glass windows of the Social Security office on Quintard Avenue. A police report estimates the damage to be around $300. The report also stated Kitchens was intoxicated at the time.

Kitchens may also be charged with throwing rocks into the glass windows and doors of another nearby business, Haynie Accounting and Tax Service on Leighton Avenue, causing about $1,500 in damages, according to the report.

Kitchens is charged with throwing a rock into an occupied vehicle, a felony. Charges for throwing rocks into the windows of the two buildings were pending Monday afternoon, Sparks said.

Kitchens’ bond has been set at $15,000.
