BREAKING: Clinton man charged with hitting two squad cars

CLINTON — A Clinton man has been charged with striking police cars two weeks ago. Clinton police cited Brent Cromer, 45, with striking an unattended vehicle.

According to a press release issued today, two marked police cars parked in the 500 block of 10th Avenue South were struck by an eastbound vehicle at 7:44 p.m. Nov. 25. The vehicle — identified as a Chevrolet or GMC pickup truck with a model year between 1999 and 2002 — fled the scene after striking both cars.

Officers later received an anonymous tip providing the name of a possible suspect, according to the press release. Police conducted a follow-up Friday on this information and located a vehicle, matching the description, with fresh damage. The damage to the vehicle was consistent to damage caused by striking the two vehicles, police said.
