FEBRUARY 9Felony snowball throwing charges have been leveled against two Virginia college students for allegedly pelting a city plow and an undercover police car during Saturday’s blizzard.

Charles Gill and Ryan Knight, both 21, were nabbed by cops in Harrisonburg, where they attend James Madison University. According to police, the pair first targeted a city plow last Saturday afternoon. The driver responded by calling cops to report the frosty fusillade.

When police responded to the scene in a bid to identify the assailants, their unmarked vehicle also came under an icy assault, according to a Harrisonburg Police Department press release.

Gill and Knight, a guard on JMU’s basketball team, were then apprehended and booked into jail for throwing missiles at occupied vehicles, a felony. Gill (top) and Knight are pictured above in Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office mug shots. If convicted of the felonious snowball tossing, the men each face between one and five years in prison, and a maximum $2,500 fine.

Since when did throwing snowballs at cars net you five years in prison? This was a common activity in my town when I was a kid. The cool kids threw snowballs at cars and the pussies made snow angels. Fortunately, we didn’t have to worry about undercover cop cars back then. They weren’t as common as they are now. Police weren’t organizing sting operations to catch snowball offenders.

Regardless, how is this a felony? This has misdemeanor written all over it. I guarantee you the cops were laughing about it until their car got hit. Cops are so touchy these days. They can’t handle being the butt of a joke. Call your friend a fairy and he’ll punch you in the arm, call a cop a fairy and he’ll beat you with a billy club. Crybabies.
