A pair of Florida sheriff’s deputies responding to a party-noise complaint appeared to back down a little too quickly when told their boss was among the guests.
The uncomfortable March 27 encounter between the deputies and party guests in Parkland was caught on the body camera footage of the officers, and obtained by The Sun-Sentinel newspaper.
When told by some attendees and the homeowner that Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony was in the backyard of the home, whooping it up with the crowd, one deputy started to walk away.
“You guys do whatever you want. Have a nice night,” the deputy said, according to the paper.
No action was taken by law enforcement because the city’s noise ordinance didn’t kick in until 11 p.m., officials said.
The sheriff is not seen on the body camera footage, and his presence at the party wasn’t confirmed.
