    Looks like the U-street community center in the background. Just a block or two away from Ben's Chili Bowl, I'm guessing this is 14th and U-street. I lived on 10th and U for a year and a half outta college.

    yeah, I got an invite to the snowball fight.

    didn't go because, well being from texas I don't much like wet + cold.

    funny shit...the undercover cop got his hummer pelted with snowballs and he just decided he doesn't have to take that shit and BAM gun out.

    looks like the trouble has started for him:

    Report: DC detective on desk duty after snowball fight incident

    (NECN/WJLA: Washington , DC) - The Washington Post is reporting that A DC plainclothes police officer accused of pulling a gun during a snowball fight in downtown Washington, has been placed on desk duty pending an investigation.

    On Saturday, more than 200 people at the nation's capitol turned up for a snow ball fight that got ugly.

    The snowball fighters, mostly in there 20s and 30s organized the "fight" at 14th and U Street on Twitter and other social media to spread the word.

    The snow ball fighters were tossing snow balls to each other until they started hitting vehicles passing through.

    The Washington Post then reports that a maroon Hummer pulled up and was hit by snowball.

    A man in plainclothes then exited the vehicle.

    According to a witness, the man did not identify himself and at least one person threw a snowball at him.

    A little time later DC police arrived after witnesses had reported a man with a gun.

    When the officer learned the man was a detective, he quickly holstered his weapon.

    Police initially stated that the detective did not flash his weapon, but on Sunday that officer was placed on desk duty after images and video on Twitter, blogs and Youtube appeared to show otherwise.

    No arrests were made and no one was hurt.

    Yeah, the cop's a dumbass for pulling his gun, but WTF is up with the rest of those morons still throwing snowballs at him after he's already pulled his gun? The cop was in the wrong, but if you're stupid enough to throw snoballs at a guy holding a gun, I have no sympathy for you when he shoots you.

    If he was a uniformed cop I wouldn't really have a problem with it. You don't know when some asshole is going to throw a rock, so don't throw shit at cops. Kind like don't point guns at cops, even if they're water guns, don't reach for his taser even if you were just going to go "haha gotcha!"

    Sounds like this guy was just a douche though.

    Not only is one person stupid enough to throw a snowball at a guy with a gun, there are number of other idiots who are just standing around to watch what happens next.

    It's the east coast - most cops I have met from the east coast have a sense of entitlement and are douchebags.

    Less freedom for the masses results in more douchey cops IMHO.
