Devon Garnett of Tampa, Florida and his buddies were watching the Stanley Cup final hockey game on Wednesday night when things got exciting. "Shoot! Shoot!" yelled the fans at the players on TV. Moments later, the police were at their door. From the Tampa Bay Times:
[The police] thought there were guns in the house," said Garnett, 26. "We're like, 'Nope, we're just screaming for Steven Stamkos.'"[…]
In a sheriff's office dispatch report released late Thursday afternoon, the complainant [in a neighboring apartment] told police he heard a couple screaming at each other, with one yelling, "I dare you to shoot!"
"Four deputies responded and discovered there were no domestic problems at the apartment in question," Verdina said in an e-mail. "It was a roommate screaming at the TV in regards to a Lightning game."
