When the police show up to any house party, it’s safe to assume that it’s pretty much over. That, however, was not the case at this get-together in North Carolina.
Police responded to a complaint from an Asheville neighborhood after a giant slip-and-slide was set up as part of a Fourth of July block party. The call was made after one neighbor complained that the DIY slide was blocking the road, messing with the flow of traffic. But when two officers arrived on the scene, they discovered that not only was the slip-and-slide not blocking the flow of traffic, but it looked like an awesome way to beat the heat. Instead of shutting down the water ride, the officers asked if they could join in on the fun!

When the cops arrived, however, they did something unexpected… Instead of shutting it down, they joined in!
“We looked at it and determined it wasn’t really an issue” said senior officer Carrie Lee
“So the first thing I said, I said I’m not here to break up your fun”
“I still can’t handle the amazing-ness of it all,” Smith later wrote
“I hope the neighbor who called them saw it all go down!!”
“When the female officer asked for a garbage bag… She took off her radio and went for it!”
“They had such good energy. All the kids were loving it,” resident Travis Eagledove told ABC News
