ECU Students Gather On Mall For Big Snowball Fight

Nearly two hundred college students took full advantage of the perfect storm--classes cancelled and three or four inches of fresh snow.

Thanks to social media, East Carolina University students converged on the mall at noon Wednesday for a massive snowball fight.

Most students were pretty civil toward their fellow snow warriors, but a couple got a little rowdy. ECU police were there to make sure things didn't get out of hand.

In 2009, a similar fight ended up with one student getting arrested and police using pepper spray to control the crowd. Nothing like that happened this time.
