Man Arrested for Allegedly Slinging Marbles at Police

A man slinging glass marbles toward police officers in Santa Ana allegedly struck the back of a police unit, causing the glass to shatter on Thursday, June 19, 2014.

A 37-year-old Santa Ana man was arrested Thursday night for slinging glass marbles at Santa Ana Police officers with a slingshot.

Hector Luis Perez (below) did not successfully hit any of the officers, but police say one marble struck the back of a unit and caused it to shatter.

Officers sent Orange County Sheriff’s Air support "DUKE" to the area where the man was slinging marbles and after reviewing the in-flight surveillance system, were able to identify the man behind the marble slinging.

Perez faces charges of vandalism and assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer.
