NEWTON (AP) -- Framingham police responding to reports of teenagers tossing eggs at a house last month got quite a surprise when they tracked down the suspects.
A department spokesman tells The MetroWest Daily News (http://bit.ly/VHWaXJ ) the three people who egged the house in the early morning hours of Dec. 11 were fellow law enforcement officers, serving with the Newton police. They were off duty at the time.
They told Framingham police that the egging incident was "a prank, a joke between friends."
The homeowner, a Newton police sergeant and their superior officer, said he would handle the matter internally.
No charges were filed and the Newton officers were not publicly identified.
