Was not felony charges. 2 snowballs were thrown for sure, 1 hit a private citizens vehicle, 1 hit a responding patrol police vehicle. 1 of the young men lied about his age to avoid getting in trouble.their lives are not ruined, they keep their nose clean and it will all go away.

Several things to address here... By young 18 year olds my neighbor means that the boys are still in high school. Let's reiterate one eagle scout, one (our son) has already signed papers to join the Navy. The first snow of the season that amounted to anything they decide to have an epic snowball fight. They also, in the heat of "having fun" decided to throw a snowball at a slow moving passing vehicle. Stupid, stupid, stupid... but malicious??? Absolutely not. They were picked up, handcuffed, taken into jail. We were notified by a bail bondsman that we would have to post bail for our son... that was Thursday evening. The court appearance was set for Friday at 8:00 a.m. The boys were told in jail that they would be charged with a misdemeanor. The following day we get to court to find out that they were charged with Reckless Endangerment which is indeed a felony.
My husband is a former EMT. We know the harm that their actions could have caused... could have, but didn't thank God. And believe me our son has been reprimanded severely. I would have supported him being taken to jail, and even being charged with a misdemeanor. I believe in being taught a lesson. But to sit in a courtroom and hear that your son is being charged with the same offense as a 7th offender that unloaded a full clip into a car that his girlfriend SITTING in - for throwing a snowball - is a little hard to swallow.
Fortunately my son will serve some community service, thanks to Jonathan Cave and Berkley Bell, and will still be able to serve his country. In the meantime a hard working, lower middle income family with 3 children in high school is out several hundred dollars.
I urge discretion and some common sense in our local law officials.
Waaaa waaaa waaa
