Police officers in Bulgaria's capital Sofia had a rough weekend, and they have no one else to blame except themselves. Local news agencies reported that crowds of protesters had taken to the streets to block the roads to the nation's parliament, as they demanded early elections.

Police officers quickly reached the scenes of protest and attempted to disperse the crowd, but their attempts literally backfired. In a clip that's now gone viral, one officer can be seen unleashing a can of pepper spray, directly into the wind, which naturally makes it blow right back in to the amassed officers.

Bulgarian authorities have since stated that no one was seriously hurt during the incident. Meanwhile, footage of the faux-pas has gone viral on social media, with multiple clips showing the hapless police officers falling victim to their own devices.

Twitter users had a field day with the viral content, and many folks had various pieces of advice for the poor cops.
