Dizzy City, of course: three flakes on the ground and this town goes bugf*ck nuts.
A plainclothes police detective allegedly pulled his gun out and waved it at a large group of people in a snowball fight at the corner of 14th and U Saturday afternoon.
The incident began when a plain-clothes detective approached the crowd of people throwing snowballs and got into a verbal altercation with members of the crowd, according to police.
A uniformed officer responded to the scene after getting calls about a man with a gun. The uniformed officer pulled out his weapon as he approached the plain-clothes detective. As soon as the detective identified himself the uniformed officer put his gun back in the holster, police said.
(H/T Drudge) Video at the link, and the guy should have kept his mouth shut. Sucks to get hit with an unexpected snowball when you’re not wearing a hat, and it’s not cool to do it to a cop in uniform*, but plainclothes get to take the same chances as the rest of us.
That being said, if they threw an iceball at him…
*Dunno why. Just is.
