It’s SNOWGATE! Who brings a gun to a snowball fight? This guy! Check out the video of innocent winter revelry turning super scary.
Ok, there’s no celebrities involved but the snowstorm in Washington D C itself, was kind of like a celebrity-sighting. The city was having a ball until an undercover police officer crashed the party shocking residents on Dec. 19, by waving his gun at a perfectly peaceful crowd gathered for a snowball fight.
Hundreds had congregated at the intersection of 14th and U Streets, NW to enjoy a rare, huge snowstorm in our nation’s capital. The young people were enjoying themselves by pelting each other with snowballs–until a man stepped out of his vehicle, gun drawn, just steps from the large crowd.
It turned out that he was an undercover cop, though he never identified himself.
The snowball fighters were drawn together through a viral campaign on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter initiated by Yousef Ali, 25. Ali thought it would be fun to see how many people he could get to participate in a snowball fight in the middle of downtown DC during the record-setting snowfall.
Bystanders captured the frightening incident on video.
President Obama, we are DYING to know how are you going to handle Snowgate! Are you going to invite the officer and 200 snowball-wielders over for a beer, or perhaps some eggnog? We want to know!
In the meantime, we give the policeman, who has not been named, the Party Pooper of the Year award. Who would bring a gun to a snowball fight??
