There's always the LaGrange Motel.

The Officer could have been, but he wouldn't have been. A water balloon could certainly cause injury, and such an incident is a form of assault -- as are a surprising number of other behaviors. Maybe the focus for concerns about not distracting Police from important matters ought to be on the fools who threw the water balloons.

If they are going to mate in the park, they should at least be licensed and up-to-date on their shots.
