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.

    I thought that snowball fights in Vermont were required from December until February? Oh wait, that’s right it’s March and such behavior is a capital offense when the season ends. Imagine a 49 year old throwing a snowball at a 39 year-old’s car. Wish I could have been there.

    Really did it do any damage, I mean is snow, not ice, or a rock snow. Like we have not had a snowball thrown at our vehicles from time to time. But to stop and get out and assult the other guy..,. so childish, what maroons, I mean can you image, Daffy Duck sueing bugs bunny for all he has done,,, Just the thought of it is laughable.
