Columbia teens plead guilty to throwing rocks at cars in July

Two Columbia teens pleaded guilty last week to throwing “softball-sized rocks” at five oncoming vehicles, including a police car, in Columbia over the summer.

Between midnight and 4 a.m. on July 27, Takim Adisa Herring-Hall and Jarrett D. Cromartie, both 19, and three other young adults drove around Columbia in Herring-Hall’s silver Hyundai Sonata, Howard County police reported.

Wayne Kirwan, a spokesman for the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office, said Cromartie and “possibly the others” threw rocks at cars sharing the road, resulting in more than $5,200 in car body and glass damage and injuring one of the drivers.
