Don't bring a gun to a snowball fight!

This is the most effed up story I've seen about the DC Snowpocalypse.

The gist:

Something like 200 people had a snowball fight at 14th and U Streets in DC:

The snowballers were courteous: they ceased fire when cars went through, and even helped unstick a few cars that got stuck in the snow/slush.

Along comes this dude:

His Hummer got hit by a snowball, so he pulled a gun. So the snowballers called the cops.

Turned out he was a cop, only he wasn't wearing a uniform, driving a marked car, showing a badge, or verbally identifying himself as law enforcement.

The local news didn't seem to think that he had pulled his gun, but he admits it here:

P1: "what's your badge number sir?"
P1: "what's your badge number?"
C1: "for what?"
P1: "so we can report your ass for.."
P2: "cause you pulled a gun!"
P1: "pulling a gun at a.."
C1: "detective baylor, ok?"
P1: "detective baylor, ok."
P1: "for pulling a gun at a snowball fight"
C1: "yes I did, cause I got hit with snowballs!"

Gun vs. snowballs. Sure, that sounds rational.
