GREENVILLE — A teen arrested and charged with hitting an officer with a snowball during a large snowball fight at East Carolina University will appear before a judge.

Steven Rashad Bass will be in a Pitt County courtroom Tuesday on charges of assault on a government official and resisting, delaying and obstructing a law enforcement officer. Officials say the 18-year-old ECU student was among more than 200 students who participated in a large-scale snowball fight on Jan. 20 when several inches of snow fell in the area.

Officials said a campus police officer used pepper spray on a group of students that rushed officers trying to make an arrest. Officials said no serious injuries had been reported among the students participating in the melee.
