A Florida sheriff says he is embarrassed that investigators from a narcotics task force were caught on camera playing a video game while searching a convicted drug dealer's house.
Video obtained by WFLA-TV in Tampa shows several officers enthusiastically playing a Nintendo Wii bowling game after the task force entered the house to execute a search warrant. Sheriff Grady Judd from Polk County said Tuesday the incident is being reviewed and disciplinary action will be taken if necessary.
A motion-sensitive video camera on a computer in the house recorded the officers, who came from several agencies including the sheriff's department. Convicted drug dealer Michael DiFalco was already in custody at the time. His lawyer declined to comment on the video.
