Default Party police

Anyone else enjoy watching Tru (court) tv when they have the party police on. Tonite is Lake Havasau, people seem to get pretty crazy out there. It's on right now.

there's places every weekend on that lake that party like that (steamboat, copper canyon, the sand bar and now even the channel) but spring break is notorious for lots of "kids" (college) going out with no boats and/or renting. So you get a lot of rented boats or POS boats that are filled to the rim with people trying to get to copper canyon. Lots of drunken idiots (thus the show).

The rest of the time is more performance oriented crowds with nice hardware. You can either find the party like that or find a private cove up near havasu springs.

I watched the Havasu episode and it was pretty good. The cops were pretty laid back.

But I watched it a few months ago and the cops were total diks, which made my skin crawl. LOL

There was a big discussion on another forum about that exact thing. some thought the cops were being d!cks and others thought they were being cool. You just have to keep in mind

A) Most of the cops on that show have seen and dealt with more drunken azzholes than anyone on this board and
B) There's most likely a lot of editing going on for the show.

I agree. The one a few months ago must have had the cops being laid back edited out!

I thought the cops on the Havasu show were actually pretty funny. I liked it when he ask that kid about the "J" missing in his alphabet but it was in his name.

Yeah - I'm watching this now. It's clear most of these are drunken young kids...what a bunch of azzholes. Actually, I though the police were pretty patient with most of them...it would be hard not to be tempted bust a few heads.

Sure shows that drinking and boating don't mix...

Yeah that cop that is in Havasu is pretty cool. When a cop tells you cut the engine and you gas it you're screwed! LOL

It goes to show how kids can't handle their booze!
