GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Gainesville police say two men accused of dropping large rocks from a freeway overpass onto cars have been arrested.

Department spokesman Kevin Holbrook said in a statement Wednesday that 18-year-old Juan Peterson and 21-year-old Kyhrie Harris both of Gainesville are charged with criminal damage and terroristic acts. It’s unclear if they have attorneys. Holbrook says police are still searching for two more young men accused of dropping large rocks from the Interstate 985 overpass in Gainesville early Tuesday morning.

Police say the first of two rocks that were dropped from the overpass caused damage to the driver’s side door of a van driven by a Duluth man. The second one ripped a hole in the roof and shattered the back window of a Honda Accord driven by a Demorest man.
