Two of the victims stated that Gregory threw objects that caused damage to their windshield and door. The third victim stated that Gregory threw dirt and rocks on his windshield causing damage to the wiper mechanism.

According to the report, Gregory told officers “he was tired of people not sharing the roadway so he must do what he has to do”.

Gregory was arrested and charged with two felony counts of throwing a deadly missile into a vehicle and transported to the Lake County Jail where he remains in lieu of a $20,000 bond.
