Regulation of the Day 113: Throwing Snowballs

Two students at James Madison University in Virginia were charged with felonies for throwing snowballs at a snowplow and an unmarked police car. This is illegal in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Talk about an over-reaction. Arrested and jailed. For throwing snowballs.

While being a jerk isn’t a crime, there is some safety risk when moving vehicles are involved. But this really seems like the kind of incident that is better settled with a talking-to instead of a jail cell.
