HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WNCN) – If you’ve ever wanted to throw a pie at a cop – for a good cause, of course – Saturday was your chance to do it in Hillsborough.
The Hillsborough Police Department took to the roof of a Wal-Mart in town and gave people the chance to throw pies in the face of their officers as part of their “Cops on Top” fundraiser being held in an effort to raise money for the Special Olympics.
“We’ve done a 5K run, we did a golf tournament, we went to Greensboro [with] another agency and did “Tip a Cop,” and now we’re doing a “Cop on Top” event,” said Hillsborough Police Officer Tereasa King. “It’s the only time you can cream a cop and not get in trouble for it.”
The event was part of the department’s efforts to raise $6,000 for the Special Olympics.
