LAKEWOOD, Wash. - Washington State Troopers arrested two people early Monday for throwing rocks off a railroad trestle onto cars driving south on Interstate 5 near Lakewood.

A State Patrol pilot looking for speeders and drunk drivers spotted two people with a heat-detecting camera.

They appeared to be dropping rocks on cars passing beneath them.

Troopers say they hit at least 14 cars.

A 23-year-old Tacoma man and an 18-year-old Lakewood woman were arrested for investigation of malicious mischief and second-degree assault.

Police later confirmed that the pair had taken off their clothes as part of some sort of game as they threw the rocks.

A Fort Lewis soldier who was riding in the passenger seat of a taxi suffered minor injuries when a rock crashed through the windshield of the vehicle.

"This is so dangerous," said Trooper Scott Sborov. "Any one of these rocks could have punctured a windshield, hit the driver in the face and killed them. It's happened many times."
