Dashcam Captures Man Throwing A Rock At Police Car

A man was caught on dashcam throwing a rock at a Coatesville Police officer. Investigators say the man also attacked another officer who helped arrest him.

Investigators said Officer Jared Davis was on patrol in Coatesville driving a marked police vehicle. As he was on patrol, Eric Watson, 29, of Coatesville, threw a large rock at the officer’s vehicle, shattering the windshield.

When Officer Davis exited his vehicle, Watson allegedly attacked him and tried to strike him in the head with a rock. Davis tried to arrest Watson but he resisted until other officers arrived and took him to the ground, police said.

Officer Davis was not injured, but another officer who assisted Officer Davis suffered a broken sternum during the attack, according to investigators.
