Snowman Head Shatters Windshield

LaPorte police say they don't plan to charge a motorist who drove his pickup truck into a snowman, sending the head flying into the air and crashing down onto a parked car's window.

Police say 33-year-old Thomas Ross has agreed to pay the $600 cost of repairing the shattered window.

Twenty-eight-year-old Amanda Boes says she saw the gray Ford pickup truck accelerate into the snowman Saturday. The head of the snowman landed on the back window of a car belonging to Boes' mother.

Police found the truck parked nearby and say Ross admitted being the driver.

After Ross promised to pay for a new window, police ordered him to provide a written copy of the cost estimate.
