Cops these days. It's like they have no respect for authority. Last month, several off-duty police officers were caught egging the home of a superior officer in a small Massachusetts town.

The MetroWest Daily News has the details. Initially, police from Framingham suspected dastardly teenagers of the shenanigans. Imagine their surprise when they pulled over the suspicious red car and discovered the egg-tossers were members of the nearby Newton, Massachusetts, police department (no, they weren't in uniform).

The driver of the car told the Framingham officer that he and his passenger had egged the house but that it was just "a prank, a joke between friends," according to Lt. Ron Brandolini, a spokesperson for the Framingham police.

When the on-duty officer returned to question the owner of the yolked home, he came across a third Newton police officer, who also admitted to having participated. The homeowner told the Framingham officer that he would deal with the pranksters internally. No omelets for a year, perhaps?
