A group of Asheville, NC, officers got to partake in some early Fourth of July fun on Monday while responding to a complaint.
The officers were responding to a street complaint when they came across the slip and slide that had been built for an annual Fourth of July neighborhood block party.
"We have 20 plus kids in the four blocks. So this year the dads built a slip and slide in the street for the kids (and adults)," Katlen Joyce Smith told FOX 46 Charlotte. "This year, someone called the police at 11:30 a.m. and said we were blocking the road."
Obviously, not all the neighbors were excited about the street being blocked off. After stressing the importance of safety and addressing the neighbors' concerns, the officers ended up joining in on the fun.
"When the female officer asked for a garbage bag, we almost didn't believe it,” Smith said. “But she took off her radio and went for it."
