        MIDDLETOWN — It's no yolk: Police here scrambled until they cracked the case of two men suspected of tossing dozens of eggs at vehicles and at a witness.

        Early Monday, Shannon Bair, 21, and Steve Monk, 19, were arrested, ending what police allege was an egg-tossing spree that began Sunday after the pair were said to have bought 41 dozen eggs.

        Each was charged with 34 counts of criminal damaging and a count of assault, a news release said.

        A witness, Adam Hall, called police about 3 a.m. Sunday to report his Chevy Camaro had been struck by eggs in the area of Park Lane. While Mr. Hall followed the vehicle to obtain a license plate num ber, the men threw eggs that struck Mr. Hall in the head, police said.

        Officer David Birk found their vehicle in the 1200 block of Jackson Lane early Monday and located its driver, Mr. Bair. Mr. Monk was his passenger, they said.

        Police encourage anyone whose vehicle was damaged by eggs to file a police report.
