Copycats Likely On L.A. Freeways

Four more car windows have been shattered on freeways in the Los Angeles area, but police said Saturday the attacks have dropped sharply since the arrests of two men.

“You could reasonably speculate that we’re looking at copycats now,” said California Highway Patrol Officer Rob Lund.

No one was injured in the latest attacks, which came Friday and early Saturday. Since the rash of blowouts began a month ago, there have 247 incidents.

Jose Soto, 21, and Hugo Hernandez, 22, were arrested Thursday for investigation of throwing projectiles capable of bodily harm at moving vehicles, and for violating probation by possessing firearms.
