Cops rushed to a house in Florida after a neighbor reported someone screaming, “Shoot! Shoot!” — only to learn it was a die-hard hockey fan watching the Stanley Cup finals on TV, according to a report.
Devon Garnett, 26, and some friends were rooting for the Tampa Bay Lightning as they faced off against the Dallas Stars Wednesday night, when cops came knocking, he told the Tampa Bay Times.
“They came to the door and thought there were guns in the house. We’re like, ‘Nope, we’re just screaming for Steven Stamkos,’” Garnett said, referencing the team’s ace forward. “They thought it was serious because I was screaming ‘Shoot!’ — as in ‘Shoot the puck!’”
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies thought the mix-up was funny, and went on their way, Garnett said.
“[They] completely understood and just laughed it off,” he said.
The sheriff’s office said authorities initially thought it was a domestic dispute.
“Four deputies responded and discovered there were no domestic problems at the apartment in question,” spokeswoman Natalia Verdina told the paper. “It was a roommate screaming at the TV in regards to a Lightning game.”
