Police: Man smashes windows of SUV stopped at red light in Round Rock


Highlights

The Chevrolet Tahoe was stopped at red light at the northbound I35 frontage road and E. Old Settlers Blvd.

Anthony Hubbard walked up to vehicle and smashed vehicle’s windows with a baseball bat, affidavit says.

A man walked up to an SUV stopped at a red light in Round Rock on Sunday and smashed its windows with a baseball bat, an arrest affidavit said.

Anthony Hubbard, 37, was charged with criminal mischief, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years.

The owner of the SUV told police the attack happened at a red light at the intersection of the northbound frontage road of Interstate 35 and E. Old Settlers Boulevard in Round Rock, the affidavit said. The document does not say what time the incident happened.

The victim said a man, later identified as Hubbard, walked up to the driver’s side window with a metal baseball bat and shattered it, according to the affidavit. Police later observed that the front passenger side and rear windshield of the vehicle were smashed, the affidavit said.

It said the owner of the vehicle and a friend who was with him told police the man was driving a white car. Officers then found Hubbard inside a white car parked at a nearby gas station in the 400 block of University Boulevard, the affidavit said.

“Hubbard appeared to be bleeding from fresh cuts to his fingers,” the document said. It said police also saw a metal bat inside his car.

Hubbard told police he had smashed the window of the other car because it was possibly involved in a previous theft, the affidavit said. He was being held Monday in the Williamson County Jail with bail set at $15,000.
