Florida cops who responded to a noise complaint at house party 'cowered away' after finding out their boss was a guest

Florida police officers were in for a big surprise after responding to a noise complaint at a house party last Saturday, only to find that a guest at the event was their own boss.

The officers were following up a noise complaint issued by the neighbors of a home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on March 27, according to the Daily best.

But when they arrived, several partygoers outside the house told them that their own boss, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, was, in fact, attending the bash.

According to bodycam footage of the encounter obtained by the South Florida sun-Sentinel on Friday, the officers never actually see their boss but are told repeatedly that he's inside.

One partygoer tells them they can go around the side of the house to see for themselves, but a deputy responds: "I'm like scared to go..." according to the Sentinel.

To prove the sheriff is there, one of the partygoers pulls out his phone to show pictures. The deputy responds by saying "Oh!" before backing away. 

"You guys do whatever you want," the deputy says after a while, walking away. "Have a nice night."

Broward Public Defender Gordon Weekes, who reviewed the footage, said it shows the deputies appearing to "cower away," according to the DailyBeast.
