Kyle Akerboom

GREEN BAY - A 21-year-old man will spend six months in jail for shooting marbles at vehicles on Interstate 43.

Kyle Akerboom was convicted of shooting the marbles at passing vehicles last October using a high-powered slingshot. Some vehicles were dented; others had smashed windows. One motorcyclist was hit in the thigh.

The judge ordered Akerboom to pay restitution and be on probation for three years. Akerboom was ordered not to have contact with Griffin Lawson, who is also accused in the case. Lawson is due to stand trial next month.
