BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) - A Bloomington man is now charged with throwing objects at cars and trucks, including a vise that broke a driver's jaw.

Thirty-nine-year-old Gerret Parks is charged with four counts of property damage and one count of first-degree assault.

The Star Tribune reports police are searching for Parks, who posted bail early Sunday from Hennepin County Jail. On Monday, he was bailed out of jail in Polk County, Wis., after being arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and fighting with police.

An investigator reports he was able to link Parks to five incidents of thrown objects, including the one that sent National Guard Sgt. Jon Stacke to the hospital last week.

Police report 14 incidents of objects hurled at cars and trucks in Bloomington between Dec. 29 and Feb. 27.
