But he then bent down and picked up the large stone from the gutter.

While clutching a can of drink in his other hand he walked back to the force car with its blue lights flashing.

The man had a brief verbal exchange with a man standing on the other side of the street.

He then hurled the rock at the Great Manchester Police vehicle in Lower Broughton Road, Salford, Gtr Mancs on Monday (18 Mar) morning.

The driver’s side front window was smashed and glass was left over the road.

The officers then returned to the car and found the damage.

One witness said: “No, no, no, no.

“That’s so funny.”

Part of the stone flew up and landed on the roof of the police car.

Local John Booth fumed: “Yeah and the hardworking taxpayer has to pay for window replacement.

“Bone head.”
