Back in December, the town of Wausau, Wis.– located approximately 200 miles northwest of Milwaukee– was considering passing an ordinance which would lift a decades-old ban on throwing snowballs. The 1962 restriction was made to restrict the throwing of rocks and other items that could trigger harm on public home, and snowballs were positioned into that category.
The Wausau Cops Department posted a video of Deputy Chief Matt Barnes back in December, describing the ordinance was “put in location for a great reason … it’s for the security of our community”– as policemans tossed snowballs behind him.
The department said they issued citations about 10 times in the last 15 years, with 2 cases including tossing snowballs at moving automobiles.
” There’s regulations like this throughout the United States. To individuals in our neighborhood: an enjoyable snowball battle is a fun snowball fight, which’s not something we enforce this ordinance with,” the deputy authorities chief said.
