Wii Distracts Cops During Drug Raid

Polk County undercover drug investigators stormed the home of convicted drug dealer Michael Difalco near Lakeland, FL in March. Nothing wrong with, right? At least until a few of the officers noticed a Nintendo Wii.

What they failed to notice, however, was a wireless security camera connected to a computer inside Difalco's home that was recording their every move. That included the fact that several of the officers decided to play with the Nintendo Wii, including one Polk County sheriff's detective who stopped cataloging evidence repeatedly to "take her turn." When she hit two strikes in a row, she jumped and kicked in celebration (see the video below).

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd was embarrassed by the incident. He said, in an understatement:
"I'm not pleased that they played that Wii bowling game. That is not appropriate conduct at a search warrant. But I am less pleased with the supervision that didn't walk in and say, turn that off. That's what supervision should have done."
The question is, who won, and will they reimburse Difalco for his electricity (they were apparently there for nine hours).
