NJ police officers, sent to bust teens, end up joining hoops game instead

The officers were called about drunken teens, but instead found a friendly game.

But when officers arrived at the scene, all they found was a group of teens playing a friendly pick-up game. So the officers -- Sergeant Ruffo and Patrol Officers Bartlett and Logreco -- split up and joined the game.

"Just another reason to love and respect this department," said a commenter on the department's Facebook page, where the officers posted video of the game.

"Great job with the youth," said another commenter "...and basketball."

For the record, the police department reported that Team Logreco won the game over Team Ruffo, 5-4.
