It was your basic turn-down-the-amps noise call for the cops in Mississauga, Ontario, on Saturday night where teenage hard rock band Vinyl Ambush was playing at a party.
The party was over for the 75 guests at an outdoor birthday party, or so the band thought.
The constables delivered their message, then left. Buzz kill.
Then they came back. They wanted to sit in, CBC reports.
“Tonight was the most fun I’ve had in years,” the cop told the kids, after telling them the biggest regret he had in life was he stopped playing in a band.
