A 56-year-old man with long wild hair and beard tossed a spear at a passing vehicle in Sacramento, Calif., on Tuesday, according to a report in the Sacramento Bee.

Police told a reporter that Jeffrey Allen Jones was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.  The incident took place near Auburn Boulevard and Annadale Lane.

A caller told police that a man standing on the road had hurled the spear at the vehicle. The spear then became stuck in the vehicle's front fender.

It was not clear why Jones threw the spear.
