275x250.jpgA man has reportedly been arrested by police after allegedly planning a mass water fight using the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service.

It's said the 20-year-old man was trying to organise the even by circulating messages on the service which was used heavily during the recent UK riots.

But while recent years have seen a number of mass water fights organised through social media, it turns out doing it so close to the riots was not a good idea.

As such the Colchester man has been charged with "encouraging or assisting in the commission of an offence" under the 2007 Serious Crime Act. Over a water fight.

He's now due to appear before magistrates next month and we'd like to suggest he doesn't take a water pistol with him.
