Grand Junction Police say a simple late-night prank could have led to a serious late-night accident.
Officers warn a silly overnight prank could have turned into a serious accident. 11 News Photographer David Jones caught officers checking out an intersection that had just been TPed around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Officers say they had just driven through the intersection at 26 1/2 and G Roads moments before, and the intersection had been toilet-paper free. Moments later, they were back, and it seemed the intersection had been the scene of a late-night teepee attack.
While the officers say the culprits would be issued a misdemeanor littering ticket if caught, the prank could have turned deadly, as the midde of an intersection is never a good place to hang out. The toilet paper was left flowing over the intersection lights throughout the night.
