A 40-year-old man was charged today in connection with freeway shootings -- using BBs or pellets -- that left windows shattered and driver rattled over the last couple months, reports the LA Times. William Matthew Frye of Apple Valley could be the man responsible for over 50 incidents on Inland Empire freeways in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. He was arrested Thursday when witnesses said he was allegedly shooting at vehicles on the 15 Freeway. No one has been hurt in any of the shootings.
