    Indiana football star arrested after throwing a water balloon at an off-duty uniformed Indiana University police officer

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Aug. 1) - Indiana tight end Blake Powers was arrested after he threw a water balloon from one car into another, hitting an off-duty police officer.

    Authorities said the 22-year-old Powers was released from the Monroe County Jail after he was booked Monday night on a preliminary misdemeanor charge of battery.

    According to a police report, Powers admitted that while a car in which he was riding was stopped at a traffic signal, he had tossed a water balloon through the open window of another car, striking the driver in the head.

    The driver, Paul Wampler, was an Indiana University police officer who had just gotten off work and was heading home. Wampler was in uniform in his personal vehicle.

    Wampler then followed the other vehicle, which had four occupants, to a residence where Powers admitted throwing the water balloon, the report said. The occupants said they had not realized the person in the other car was a police officer.

    All four car occupants tested negative for alcohol use, said IU police Capt. Jerry Minger.

    Powers, a senior, is a former starting quarterback who switched position this spring and is currently the No. 2 tight end.

    Coaches were informed of the incident, said team spokesman Jeff Keag.

    "We are aware of the situation, and any team discipline will be handled internally," he said.

    That will be a slap on the back and a "GOOD JOB!"
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

    I always love when I hear that. "If I saw you sitting there I wouldn't have run that red light officer." Gee, ya think?!? Idiots.
