It's all fun and games until someone loses a windshield. At least that's the lesson out of Lancaster, Wisc., after police arrested two 18-year-olds following a water balloon binge that damaged at least three vehicles, the Associated Press reports.

The good, clean fun met with a buzzkill from the fuzz Tuesday, when the Grant County Sheriff’s Department says it began receiving calls about objects that were being thrown from a car on Highway 11 in an area just southeast of Winona, CBS Minnesota reports.

The Duluth News Tribune adds that cops caught up with the teens, and determined they threw more than 80 water balloons at vehicles or pedestrians. The water balloons caused cracked windshields on three vehicles. Authorities asked that anyone else whose vehicle was hit by water balloons in the area around midday Tuesday call the sheriff's office.

The seemingly humdrum news has gone somewhat viral, and follows hot on the heels of seven high school students in Raleigh, N.C., being arrested for an end-of-school-year prank that left one security guard soaked and fit to be tied. Anyone interested in documenting all that's wrong with today's youth can check out this list of students in hot water for apparently breaking the law with similar shenanigans.
