    James Maison guard in trouble for throwing snowballs at cop car

    Knight and fellow James Madison student Charles Gill, both 21, were both charged with throwing "missiles" at occupied vehicles, a felony that amazingly could send them both to prison for up to five years. (Even in a world where spork-wielding six-year-olds can be suspended from school, a tad excessive, no?)

    At about 5 p.m. on Saturday, police responded to a report that two men were throwing snow at the windshield of a city plow truck. When police arrived at the scene to search for the assailants, their unmarked squad car was also bombarded with icy projectiles.
    Ugh! But throwing snowballs at cars is so much fun! You're telling me I that before I throw my snowball, I have to consider the possibility that every car I see could be an unmarked cop car? That takes all the fun out of it! (Or, if you like to live dangerously, makes it all the more exciting. You rebel you.)

    Jokes aside, let's hope the judges in Harrisburg, Va. can devise a punishment that more accurately fits the crime. Five years for a snowball is more than excessive. A little community service and one of those painful Saturday morning behavior awareness classes should get the job done here. Lesson learned -- by all of us.

    If convicted for every snowball I threw at a car I'd be incarcerated for hundreds of years after I was dead.
