"Okay, remember the plan. Make sure no suspects are hiding in the house. Search the entire premises for drugs and weapons. And don't forget to...holy shit, is that Wii Bowling?"
With guns drawn, Florida investigators burst into the house of a convicted drug dealer to seize evidence. Instead they were seized by the overwhelming urge to turn on the Nintendo Wii and bowl a few games.
While some detectives hauled out evidence such as flat screen televisions and shotguns, others threw strikes, gutter balls and worked on picking up spares.
A Polk County sheriff's detective cataloging evidence repeatedly put down her work and picked up a Wii remote to bowl. When she hit two strikes in a row, she raised her arms above her head, jumping and kicking.
All told, the detectives put in more than an hour of playing time. Jurors had better hope that the Wii isn't presented as evidence at trial, or the prosecution's witnesses might request to be sequestered with it for a while.
