A 13-year-old boy has been charged with a felony after he threw a snowball at a police officer on the West Side, hitting him in the arm as he sat in his squad car, officials said.

The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 4900 block of West Congress Parkway, about two blocks from where the student attends school, according to a police report.

The officer reported that the boy threw a snowball at him while he was in a marked squad car.

The boy was taken into custody and charged as a juvenile with aggravated battery to a peace officer, a felony. The Tribune is not naming him because he is a minor.
