For many of us, the novelty value of the Wii wore off a long time ago—not so for undercover cops in Polk County, Florida. They were recently busted bowling on the job by a convicted drug dealer's security camera.

As investigators searched the home for drugs, some drug task force members found other ways to occupy their time. Within 20 minutes of entering Difalco's house, some of the investigators found a Wii video bowling game and began bowling frame after frame.

While some detectives hauled out evidence such as flat screen televisions and shotguns, others threw strikes, gutter balls and worked on picking up spares.

Apparently, several members of the team played for around an hour during the raid—high-fiving, pumping fists and generally having a good time. Not surprisingly, some people have deemed this behavior "inappropriate." Maybe so, but the fact that they played the game does not invalidate the search and it doesn't seem to have wasted any taxpayer money. Hell, it's not like they were partaking in the dealer's inventory—these guys deserve a break now and then. [TBO via Fark]
