By Bill Myers and Freeman Klopott
WASHINGTON, D.C. — A D.C. police officer who made international headlines after drawing his gun during a snowball fight should be suspended for 10 days, internal investigators have recommended.
Detective Michael Baylor didn't fill out the correct paperwork after he stopped a man who he thought had tossed a snowball and "engaged in conduct that is prejudicial to the reputation of the police force," according to an internal police report of the incident.
