A couple of officers in North Carolina are going viral after having a little fun in the sun while out on a street complaint. A complaint brought Officers Joe Jones and Carrie Lee to a neighborhood on Sunday.
According to some reports, one of the neighborhood fathers built the slide for the children in the neighborhood to enjoy during their block’s annual 4th of July party.
When the officers arrived in the middle of the party, they notified the parents that they had received a complaint from one of the neighbors that the homemade water slide was blocking the road, Asheville police said.
When the 2 officers arrived, they quickly realized that this was not the case.
Officer Carrie Lee said that she did not want to stop the fun. “The first thing I told them is that I’m not here to break up your fun,” Lee said.
After that, the neighbors encouraged the two officers to join the fun in which they happily obliged to.
In the taken videos of the event, Lee can be seen using a trash bag to slide down the homemade slide.
Officer Joe Jones said that he thought that he is too big to fit into a trash bag, but then, the children brought out a big raft so he agreed join in.
The videos went viral and people praised the officers for reaching out and connecting so positively with the public.
