NEWTON, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts police responding to reports of teenagers tossing eggs at a house last month got quite a surprise when they tracked down the suspects.
A department spokesman tells The MetroWest Daily News ( http://bit.ly/VHWaXJ) the three people who egged the house in Framingham early Dec. 11 were fellow law enforcement officers serving with the Newton police. They were off duty at the time.
They told Framingham police the egging incident was "a prank, a joke between friends."
The homeowner is a Newton police sergeant and their superior officer. He says is handling the matter internally.
No charges were filed, and the Newton officers were not publicly identified.
