In addition to that, six other calls were made from motorists with vehicles beng struck by rocks.

These incidents occurred early Thursday morning and late Thursday evening. The only description of the suspect, given by one of the motorists, was a male dressed in all white on the side of the roadway at the bridge.

Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to call Chief Deputy Allen Peel at 859-885-4139.
