INDIANAPOLIS - Two men were arrested Monday after police said they were throwing water balloons at Indianapolis Metro Police Department officers.
Police said the men were throwing the water-filled balloons from the 6th floor of a parking garage on Market Street near Pennsylvania St. in downtown Indianapolis.
The men threw the balloons at plain-clothes officers who were on unmarked bicycles. The undercover officers called for assistance after the men attempted to hide inside the garage.
Joshua Hayes and Brandon Harper were quickly taken into custody after police found a water balloon pump and balloons hidden under an SUV inside the garage.
During the investigation, police said the pair admitted to throwing the balloons and that they had done it several times before.
Investigators said the officers were at risk of serious bodily injury because the weight of the balloon thrown from 60 feet in the air was approximately one pound.
Harper and Hayes were arrested on criminal recklessness charges.
