(Scroll down for video) A 22-year-old beat up a teenager for breaking a snowman.
Police were called to a fight over a snowman that “went missing.”
James Knudsen, 22, of Clinton, Connecticut, had built the snowman outside his trailer park home.
However, when he looked for the snowman, it was gone, and he accused his 16-year-old neighbor of breaking it.
Police said that Knudsen broke the door to his neighbor’s house, stormed inside, grabbed a pool stick and hit the child.
When a 17-year-old tried to interfere, Knudsen beat that teen as well.
The teens suffered minor injuries, but did not require medical attention. Both teens denied the allegations, and they told police that the snowman might have melted.
Knudsen was charged with criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and third-degree assault.
