“No person shall throw or shoot any object, arrow, stone, snowball or other missile or projectile, by hand or by any other means, at any other person,” says the Wausau municipal code, under the “Weapons” heading in the section dealing with “Peace, Safety, and Morals.”It does sound like a snow job...
“It’s really in the interest of public safety,” Wausau Mayor Robert B. Mielke told WCCO.
“A lot of it is just consideration and common sense. You don’t throw stuff at people, period.”
Mielke says that the proposal to ban snowballs was brought forth years ago, after some issues developed involving projectiles. However, police told WCCO that they could not recall issuing a fine for the throwing of a snowball.
