Karissa Eberle’s sunglasses got knocked off her face when some of the pennies, allegedly thrown by Paul Castelli of Framingham landed inside her car.

Eberle’s boyfriend, Geoff Fritz was driving. He says Castelli cut him off in traffic near the Ashland police station and threw the pennies when Fritz honked.

“He just had an attitude when he looked at me and he started going nuts,” says Fritz.

Fritz then followed him, but says Castelli was going too fast. The couple’s baby was in the backseat.

“I was very scared,” says Eberle. “The first thing that comes to mind is my six month old son in the backseat.”

The couple went to the police station to file a report. Police traced the plate and arrested Castelli. He is due back in court next month on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
