Three Newton police officers had egg on their faces last month. The trio were caught by Framingham police after egging the house of a superior officer.
The incident occurred at approximately 1:51 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11, according to Framingham police, when officers responded to a report of two male “teenagers” throwing eggs at a Griffin Road residence. The caller said the pair drove off in a red car.
Framingham police stopped the car at 2 a.m. near the residence, and identified the occupants as two Newton police officers, according to Lt. Ron Brandolini, a Framingham police spokesman.
The driver admitted the pair had just egged the home but said, “It was a prank, a joke between friends.”
As Framingham police headed back to the residence to speak with the homeowner, a third Newton police officer was found. Framingham police said he also took part in the egging.
Framingham police didn’t identify any of the Newton Police officers involved.
Framingham police spoke to the homeowner, a Newton police sergeant, who said he would handle the matter internally within the department.
No charges were filed against the Newton officers.
Newton Police Chief Howard Mintz wasn’t immediately available for comment for this report.
