Though the incident is still being investigated by police, they believe that the suspect was in an argument with his former roommate on Wednesday, when he suddenly tossed a cinder block into the rear window of his former roommate’s vehicle.
The man who threw the cinder block was identified as 39-year-old Carl Winston Forsyth III, who has since been charged with criminal mischief over $200, throwing a missile into a vehicle, and disorderly conduct.
The accident took place late at night around 10:40 p.m. and there were several witnesses who spoke with police. They are still investigating the circumstances leading up to the incident at this time.
