Boy Hits Policeman with Snowball, Is Charged with Felony

According to The Chicago Tribune, the incident happened close to the school the boy attends. The officer reported that the boy threw a snowball and hit him in the arm while he sat in a marked squad car. The eight-grader claims he wasn't the one who threw the snowball and that it didn't hit the officer directly. Regardless, he was arrested and charged with battery to a police officer, which is a felony.

In addition to the charges, the school has suspended the boy for five days, his mother said. Police confirmed it was the suspect's first arrest.
