PAULDING COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

The Paulding County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man accused of throwing rocks, bricks and other objects at vehicles on multiple occasions over the past few months.

Mackinley Graham Pritchard, 18 of Dallas, was arrested on December 28 and charged with three counts of committing terrorist acts.

According to the Paulding County Sheriff's Office, Pritchard is accused of throwing the objects at several vehicles along Villa Rica Highway or SR 61 over the past three months. No one was injured but drivers of vehicles struck reported significant damage.

“This type of senseless lawlessness will not be tolerated in Paulding County," said Sheriff Gary Gulledge in a press release. "I commend our Deputies and Detectives for their hard work in putting this individual behind bars. Hopefully our citizens can travel down GA SR 61 South with a better sense of security now that Pritchard is in jail.” 

Pritchard is jailed on a $8,450 bond.
