Cops let a lot of things slide on the Fourth of July, but one group of law officers in North Carolina did so literally when they responded to a complaint about a block party.
Someone called 911 to report that a huge slip-and-slide was blocking the street and asked police to shut it down.
Officers arrived to find an impressive plastic slide built into the street for kids and adults. After lecturing everyone about the importance of safety, the officers joined in the fun. The unexpected legal turn was captured on video.
