rock throwing on playground
my son was recently accused of throwing a rock from the school playground allegedly cracking a window and causing damage at a car going down the street. Duty teacher did not see it. There were also 2 other boys throwing rocks with him. The accuser said he saw a blonde haired boy throwing rocks while passing by the playground and wants me to pay for the damages. First, these are pea rocks put there by the school and second, I can't understand how these rocks could cause that much damage. Who's liable for this if they didn't see my son do it?

Re: rock throwing on playground
They would have to prove that your son did the damage; If they have coverage for it, their car insurance would pay for the damage. If you son wasn't charged with this, then the driver would have a tough case.
