    A man slinging glass marbles toward police officers in Santa Ana allegedly struck the back of a police unit, causing the glass to shatter on Thursday, June 19, 2014.

    A 37-year-old Santa Ana man was arrested Thursday night for slinging glass marbles at Santa Ana Police officers with a slingshot.

    Hector Luis Perez (below) did not successfully hit any of the officers, but police say one marble struck the back of a unit and caused it to shatter.

    Officers sent Orange County Sheriff’s Air support "DUKE" to the area where the man was slinging marbles and after reviewing the in-flight surveillance system, were able to identify the man behind the marble slinging.
