Deputies arrested a woman Sunday morning who was allegedly breaking windows and throwing rocks at cars south of Redding.

Shasta County sheriff's deputies were called to the area of Skypark and Airport Roads around 8:15 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived they found 37-year-old Elizabeth Minetto standing barefoot in the middle of the road throwing rocks at passing cars.

Minetto refused to get out of the road so deputies were forced to grab her and pull her to safety.

During the investigation, deputies located broken windows at a nearby business and found that Minetto was responsible.

Witnesses told deputies Minetto had thrown her shoes at a car, and then damaged a few others with rocks. She was booked into the Shasta County Jail for felony vandalism and resisting arrest.
