Oregon's Pharaoh Brown suspended for role in snowball fight

Last Friday, a video surfaced from the University of Oregon campus that showed many students engaged in an all-out snowball fight. It all started off as good fun, but things got out of hand quickly as cars began to drive past the scene.

One car attempting to drive through was pelted by snowballs and treated to a dance before making it’s way through, but the other driver was not as lucky.

After sitting in his car as it was hammered by snowballs, the driver got out to address the situation. Unfortunately for the man, he was greeted with a giant bucket of snow thrown his way and he was clearly unhappy.

The good news is that neither of the drivers pressed charges for the incident, but Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown has been suspended for his role in the snowball fight and he will miss the team’s Valero Alamo Bowl match up against the Texas Longhorns as a result.

“I was one of the many UO students involved in the snowball fight on Friday, and my actions escalated to an inappropriate level and, for that, I sincerely apologize,” Brown said in a statement released by the university. “We never should have engaged innocent people, and I deeply regret my actions and will accept the consequences.”

A number of other players were also disciplined for their involvement, but they were able to get away without missing the game.
