DC officer off streets over gun at snowball fight

WASHINGTON – A Washington, D.C., police officer is on desk duty while the department investigates reports he pulled a gun during a mass snowball fight on a city street.

Mayor Adrian Fenty said Monday the police department's internal affairs office is investigating witness accounts and video footage.

Police said in a release that images and statements appeared to support claims the off-duty officer did pull a gun after he and his personal car were hit by snowballs.

Hundreds of people were gathered for the snowball fight during Saturday's record snowstorm.

A video posted on YouTube showed a man holding what appears to be a gun in the snowy street. Another video shows the same man telling people he is a detective and that he pulled his gun because he was hit by snowballs.
