Asheville Police officers take ride on homemade water slide

Officers Carrie Lee and Joe Jones quickly became the most popular people at the party, after they slid down the slip-and-slide in full uniform. When police arrived, they joined in the fun instead. They're going to shut us down, ' but they noticed the noise was fine. "It was literally the sound of kids playing", North Carolina resident Christina Hallings told ABC News.

Officer Lee went down the slide on a garbage bag.

But the officers stated that the slide was close enough to the side of the road to not be in any cars' way, WLOS reported.

"When it's hot...and your responding to a street complaint...and there's a fun way to cool down...you take advantage of a giant slip and slide. There were no citations issued".

Alongside a picture of the two half-drenched cops with some of the neighborhood kids, Smith said in a Facebook post, "I still can't handle the amazing-mess of it all".

The videos soon went viral, with close to 300,000 views at the time of this writing, with hundreds of positive comments. He told CNN, "I thought I was going to be able to get out of it because I'm too big to fit in a trash bag".

Little did he know that he'd also set a Slip 'N Slide record that day.
