Two Massachusetts Men Charged In VT Snowball Fight

JAY, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont State Police say two Massachusetts men are facing criminal charges after they got into a fight in the town of Jay when one of the men threw a snowball at the car of the other.

Police say the incident began Friday afternoon when 49-year-old Charles Dow of Newton, Mass., threw a snowball at a moving vehicle belonging to 39-year-old Robert Earley of Nantucket, Mass.

Police say Earley then stopped the vehicle and assaulted Dow, who was treated for his injuries at the North Country Hospital in Newport.

Earley was cited into court on a charge of simple assault. Dow was charged with disorderly conduct.

Both men are due in court in May.
