Around 8:45 p.m., Amarillo police responded to Bolton and I-40 on a report of someone throwing rocks at vehicles on the highway.

When police arrived, they saw 39-year-old Matthew Christopher Meyers throw a rock and a beer bottle at a police car. When police contacted Meyers, they say he was still holding rocks in his hands and refused to comply with demands to drop them.

Police then tased him and took him into custody. He was booked into the Potter County Detention Center on five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

One woman was transported to the hospital with injuries to her eyes from glass fragments, and multiple people sustained damage to their cars from the rocks.
