Authorities are looking for whoever threw a chunk of asphalt onto a California Highway Patrol car in Mountain View on Thursday, shattering a rear window and startling the officer inside.
The incident happened at about 11:30 a.m., when CHP Officer Marco Castillo was stopped on the right shoulder of northbound state Highway 85 just north of Dana Street, according to CHP spokesperson Officer Grace Castillo (no relation).
The large piece of asphalt fell through the left rear window and was believed to have come from the Dana Street overcrossing, she said. The officer was uninjured but went off-duty after the incident.
Police believe the act was intentional. A search of the area didn't turn up any other debris, Grace Castillo said.
Anyone who may have any information on the incident is asked to call the CHP Redwood City office at (650) 369-6261, ext. 337.
