Cops Called To Shut Down 4th Of July Slip-And-Slide End Up Joining In

By Mark Pygas

While you were eating a disgusting amount of food yesterday, police officers and other essential staff were hard at work. And by the looks of it, they were called to some pretty stupid complaints. In Asheville, North Carolina, two police officers were sent to a complaint about a giant slip-and-slide that had been set up for a Fourth of July block party. 

Resident Katlen Joyce Smith explained that a dad had set up the slide to combat the heat, and a neighbor told police that it was blocking the road. But when Officer Carrie Lee and Joe Jones arrived, they decided to join in. 

"When the police came, they quickly realized that wasn't the case and asked if they could take a turn," Smith said.
