Cops Get Slip 'N Slide Complaint And Play On It Because We're All Kids At Heart


You know things are going south when the cops crash your party.

Police officers in Asheville, North Carolina, responded to complaints that a father's manmade Slip 'N Slide was blocking the road during a Fourth of July block party, CNN reports. But when they arrived at the scene, things didn't turn out the way you'd imagine.

"We looked at it and determined it wasn't really an issue," Officer Carrie Lee said in a video the police department posted on its Twitter account. "So the first thing I said, I said, 'I'm not here to break up your fun.'"

Break up the fun? More like join the fun.


Since the DIY Slip 'N Slide looked more inviting than hazardous, the cops decided to enjoy the festivities and take a ride for themselves. Imagine everyone's surprise when they thought the homemade Slip 'N Slide was sliding its way out of the block party.

Officer Joe Jones followed his colleague's lead and decided to get on a raft. Plus, once the kids showed up with the raft, he didn't really have an opportunity to say "no."

"I thought I was going to be able to get out of it, because I'm too big to fit in a trash bag," he said, according to CNN. "But then when the kids pulled out this big raft, I had no choice."

Let's face it: As far as DIY projects go, this one is pretty epic -- so you can't blame the officers for giving it a whirl themselves. I know I would've done the same, had I been in that situation. Even though his "butt got wet," it was well worth it.


Naturally, when Twitter heard about this epic party crash, it couldn't get over the scenario.

People obviously couldn't get over how the situation unfolded with the coolest cops on the force.

As for the person who made the complaint in the first place, Katlen Joyce Smith said on Facebook, "I hope the neighbor who called them saw it all go down!!"
