A man has appeared in court charged with causing a danger to road users after rocks were thrown at vehicles driving on the Norfolk-Suffolk border.
Aaron Hurley, 25, admitted at Norwich Magistrates' Court on Wednesday to three counts of causing a danger to road users and denied a fourth count.
Each charge said the defendant "intentionally caused stones and rocks to be on a road... in such circumstances that it would have been obvious to a reasonable person that it would have been dangerous".
He also pleaded guilty on Wednesday to three counts of criminal damage and denied a fourth count.
The charges to which Hurley pleaded guilty happened on the A140 at Pulham Market, the A47 Acle Straight in Great Yarmouth and the A143 at Stockton, with damage caused to a Honda Jazz, Ford Focus and a third motor vehicle.
