Martin Luther Kane, the Fairfax County man who was accused last week of venting his anger over a $10 parking fine by ramming a dump truck into three Vienna police cruisers, has been charged with yet another outburst of violence against a law enforcement vehicle, authorities said.
This time, the object of Kane's wrath was a Fairfax County cruiser parked in the Reston area Monday night, said Fairfax County police spokeswoman Connie Curran.
Shortly after officers left their car to investigate reports of a fight in a Reston subdivision, they heard a loud smashing sound, Curran said. When they turned around, the officers saw the windows of their cruiser shattered, apparently by a rock, and a man standing nearby with his hands in his pockets.
The man started to run when an officer called his name, but was quickly caught, Curran said.
Kane, 28, of 6475 Burwell Dr. in Springfield, was charged with destruction of county property and was released yesterday from the Fairfax County jail on $1,000 bond, officials said.
"I don't think we've had a case like this in a long time, where someone has directed their aggression against the police in such an interesting way," the police spokesman said.
Last Wednesday, Kane was arrested and charged with destroying two cruisers and severely damaging a third when he allegedly slammed them with a 21,000-pound dump truck at the Vienna Town Hall. Kane later told an officer that he drove to the town hall to discuss a parking fine but had "a nervous breakdown" when he saw the row of parked police cars.
