ALBANY, GA (WALB) - 22-year-old Brandon Hilbourn, of Mitchell County, is charged with terroristic threats or acts for throwing his cell phone at the tractor trailer behind him.

It happened around one Tuesday morning at the intersection of Mock and Moultrie Roads. Dougherty County Police say truck driver Tim Jackson of Omega blew his horn at Hilbourn to go when the light turned green.

Police say Hilbourn turned onto Moultrie Road, pulled over, then threw his cell phone at the big rig as it went by. 

"The statute actually says anyone who shoots or throws and object at a conveyance that is being operated or has passengers has committed terroristic threats and acts which is in fact a felony," said Dougherty County Police Capt. Jimmy Sexton.

Using that cell phone officers tracked Hilbourn to Mitchell County. They say he was upset over an argument with his girlfriend.

He was charged with criminal trespass, family violence, and disorderly conduct in that incident during which they say he damaged another car.
