Posted: Updated:

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) - A woman told police in Opelika that her window was broken out after a man along Interstate 85 hurled an unknown object at the vehicle.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (http://bit.ly/YqOM3G) that it happened Monday as the woman drove south on I-85 near the Hurtsboro exit.

She said the man was walking on the side of the Interstate wearing a dark rain jacket. When she looked back and noticed the window broken, she pulled over and called police.

Opelika police Capt. Bruce DeLong said officers are unsure what was thrown at the woman's car. The suspect, if caught, would face charges of shooting or throwing a deadly or dangerous missile into an occupied vehicle.
