The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office said a 17-year-old boy was arrested early Tuesday morning after throwing rocks at deputies responding to a fight near his home in Castroville.
At 12:20 a.m., the sheriff’s office said, deputies responded to a report of a fight on the 11400 block of Main Street.
Upon arrival, they said, deputies were told that about five people were involved in a knife fight which left one person wounded. By the time deputies got to the scene, the sheriff’s office said, all but the person wounded in the fight had left.
Soon after, they said, the 17-year-old boy emerged from him home several doors away and started throwing lava rocks and concrete at the deputies. The sheriff’s office said the rocks did not hit the deputies. However, they said, a parked 1995 Buick La Sabre was struck by one of the rocks thrown. The sheriff’s office told deputies later that he was trying to hit their patrol cars because he disliked law enforcement officers.
The teen was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism. He was booked in county Juvenile Hall
