[February 28, 2009]  TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities said two men were arrested after they threw an unopened 16-ounce can of Bud Light at an unmarked police vehicle.

Tampa police Cpl. Richard Blasioli was on duty early Thursday morning, driving an unmarked 2001 Ford Expedition, when he saw a 1999 Toyota Solara cruising the wrong way down a road.

He said the driver, a 28-year-old man, swerved the car toward the police vehicle, and 24-year-old man leaned out of the passenger window and threw the can, hitting Blasioli's right front fender.

Officers arrested the pair within minutes.

Both men were charged with throwing a deadly missile at an occupied vehicle, and the passenger faces an additional drug possession charge.

They were later released on bail.
