GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A 19-year-old man has pled not guilty to charges he and a friend shot marbles at vehicles driving on Interstate 43 in Green Bay.

Griffin Lawson will stand trial March 26 on five counts, including recklessly endangering safety.

The other suspect, 20-year-old Kyle Akerboom, had his arraignment postponed Monday to January 27.

According to authorities, the two men shot marbles at vehicles back in October. Some of the vehicles had smashed windows and dented bodies. One woman was hit in the thigh as she rode on a motorcycle.

Police say the two admitted that they got tired of shooting birds and squirrels in the forested area along the interstate and decided to make a game out of shooting at cars.
