    The Broward Sheriff's Office is looking for a foul-mouthed, Santa Claus-hat wearing man who threw a rock into the windshield of a county bus.

    The incident happened around noon on November 18, after the man got on the bus near Northwest 16th Street and 441 in Lauderhill, the BSO said.

    Authorities say the belligerent passenger and his friend were using profanity, and were asked by the bus driver to stop but continued cursing.

    When the two were kicked off the bus in the 2600 block of Northwest 49th Street in Lauderdale Lakes, they verbally confronted the driver, the BSO said. One of the men then picked up a rock and tossed it at the bus, smashing the passenger side windshield, the BSO said.

    A surveillance video from the bus captured the incident.

    The BSO said the suspect, believed to be in his late teens, was wearing a red Adidas sweatsuit with white stripes to go with his Santa hat.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Broward CrimeStoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
