Two men and a teenager were hit with a slew of charges Sunday morning after allegedly chucking bricks at a passenger train in Huron.

Zachary Gilbert, 20, of Collins; Spencer Griffin, 18, of Huron; and a 17-year-old Huron boy were all charged with aggravated trespassing, obstructing official business, railroad vandalism and disrupting public service.

Gilbert was also charged with underage consumption.

At about 4 a.m., Huron police received a call about people throwing objects at trains along a section of tracks near River Road. When officers rolled up to the scene they spotlighted the three men, who immediately bolted east down the tracks. Officers called for backup and chased the three suspects into the woods.
