Nottinghamshire Police said hundreds have calls have been pouring in about snowballs since the weather took a turn for winter, with 120 calls alone made between Tuesday morning and Thursday morning, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.
''We are advising people to only ring us if there is an incident with snowball throwing that it seems only police can deal with," a police spokesman said.
''These include incidents that are examples of serious anti-social behavior, or involve vulnerable people, or pose real and serious dangers to traffic," he said. ''We are receiving a great number of weather-related calls and are asking people to consider if the situation regarding snowball throwing is really a matter for police before they ring.''
