Felony Snowball Tossing Charges Lodged

(THE SMOKING GUN)   Felony 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 below 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.

  • “Throwing missiles at occupied vehicles” to describe snowballing sounds like Orwellian New-speak!

    The police state is trumping-up college Tomfoolery into a felony with a max of 5 years in prison!

  • In the rare event that a police officer does behave as if he is an equal to other citizens they are reproached. There was a group of three riot police in Britain that went sledging with the locals one lunchtime and were then punished for wasting time improving relations with the loacls instead of sitting in the station doing nothing.
