Police in Washington Township issued a warning as students in the Warren Hills Regional School District began the annual “Water Wars” game.
The Washington Township Police Department posted a Facebook message and mentioned if students participate in the games, to make sure their water guns look nothing like a real weapon.
The department shared images of a real handgun and a water pistol, showing the similarities between the two.
“We understand that water gun fights are not illegal, but it is important to know that this game has the potential to create unsafe conditions for both the students involved and our community,” police wrote.
Authorities say the game has previously led to unsafe driving situations and other unsafe situations, that they did not specify, in the town which they say has “jeopardized the safety of the Warren Hills Community.”
