Consecutive cold weekends in January may have been keeping many in Muncie craving the warmth of their homes, but when the local police department threw the community a challenge on a short notice, enticing them with hot chocolate, people showed up. The Muncie Police Department’s (MPD) night shift officers challenged the local community to a friendly pop up snowball fight, through a Facebook post, at Canan Commons in downtown Muncie. “It’s just pretty spontaneous,” said MPD Patrolman Chase Winkle. “We did this with about two hours of planning.” Winkle, who handles community relations for MPD, said the police department has been thinking of organizing an event snow and cold weather related and thought the area would be a good spot for challenging kids to a snowball fight. “We’re not doing anything job related right now. It’s just cutting loose. The officers are acting like kids as much as the kids are acting like kids,” Winkle said. “It just makes it fun.”
