SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y. — Three Middle Island teens were arrested Halloween night for shooting paintballs at a passing Suffolk County police car -- a marked cruiser driven by an on-duty officer -- hitting the driver's side window twice, police said.

The fusillade of paintballs hit the patrol car on Currans Road in Middle Island at 7:06 p.m. Wednesday, and the three were soon found by assisting officers in a nearby parking lot and were arrested.
