When a stranger takes a picture with a balloon, police are in the area to help, but no one is there to help.
That is, until an unruly guest, who had apparently taken the picture of himself in the middle of the night with his own water balloon in his hand, took it to the police.
It turns out the balloon belonged to a friend of the guest.
So the police were called in to take it away.
The balloon was confiscated.
The police were there to get it back, and were told they were allowed to keep it, because the photo had not been taken by the person who took it.
In other words, it was a case of a police officer protecting the public.
The whole thing happened in less than three hours, but it has garnered plenty of attention in the media, including an article on the Inquisitr site, where one commenter called it “the worst selfie ever” and said the balloon had “created a lot of problems.”
