NEWTON, Mass. (January 4, 2013)—Authorities who responded last month to a report of teenagers tossing eggs at a house got quite a surprise when they tracked down the pranksters.
A police department spokesman told The MetroWest Daily News the three people who egged the house on Dec. 11 in Framingham, Mass. were fellow law enforcement officers serving with the Newton police.
They were off duty at the time.
The officers told Framingham police the egging incident was "a prank, a joke between friends."
The homeowner is a Newton police sergeant and their superior officer who says he is handling the matter internally.
No charges were filed, and the Newton officers were not publicly identified.
