The Newton Police Department, coming off an episode that led to the departure of their police chief, now faces a report that three of its officers egged a home in Framingham as a prank.
Three off duty Newton police officers were caught throwing eggs at the home of their superior officer in the early morning of December 11, 2012. According to Framingham police, neighbors complained that a house was being egg at around 2am.
Framingham police responded and stopped a car with two adults and later found another near the home.
The Newton officers told police that it was a prank and a joke between friends. No arrests were made and charges have not been filed. In fact close to a month has passed before the story was even reported. The names of the officers throwing the eggs has not been released.
This is not the first embarrassment for the Newton, Massachusetts police department. In the fall the City’s mayor fired the police chief inappropriate behavior because of comments he made to women in the department.
Police charge people every day criminally for actions just like these. Whether it is malicious damages, disorderly conduct or vandalism charges are usually filed in situations like this.
