Cops Play Basketball With Teens After False Report

| by Jonathan Constante

A photo of police officers playing basketball with a group of teenagers who were falsely accused of drinking in the park is going viral.

Police in Bremerton, Washington received a call April 28 about a group of teens who were supposedly drinking in the park, King-TV reported.

But when they arrived at the scene, the kids were simply playing basketball and drinking water, KCPQ notes. Not wanting to let the call go to waste, the officers decided to stick around for a pick-up game.

“BPD got a call of teens drinking in the park... but they were water bottles,” the police department tweeted. “So we played hoops with them instead.”

The picture has been retweeted more than 161 times since being posted.
