The Press-Register reports on the Elberta police chief who is back at work after an incident recently where a chunk of cinder block was thrown through his patrol car windshield.

The object smashed his windshield, struck the chief's face and struck the cage behind his head hard enough to break the shotgun mounted there, Pledger said.

"Two inches to the other side and I wouldn't be talking to anyone," Pledger said. "If it had been more in the center instead of the side of my face it could very well have been fatal. I really didn't appreciate how close it was until later."
