BARTOW, Fla. — A central Florida sheriff is trying to obtain a full copy of a video that shows investigators caught on camera playing a video game while executing a search warrant.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Tuesday his office wants to get the full video before starting an internal investigation of the incident.
The video was obtained by WFLA-TV in Tampa and shows various officers enthusiastically playing a Nintendo Wii bowling game after storming the house near Lakeland armed with a search warrant in March.
Unbeknownst to the officers of the anti-drug task force, video surveillance had been set up in the home of convicted drug dealer Michael Difalco, who was already in custody.
The sheriff said he has only seen about 15 minutes of a video that is about an hour long.
