Cops Investigate Noise Complaint but End up Playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Instead

Some friends decided to throw a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament when a noise complaint was reported with the local police, but the unexpected happened when they turned up

Usually, police stories these days don’t end too well, but this is a story that’ll brighten up your mid-week blues and it’s just another piece of evidence how much gaming brings people together, especially Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – where everyone and their granny seems to be giving it a go lately.

Jovante M. Williams threw a get-together with some friends at an apartment in Saint Paul, Minnesota last week to host a Smash Bros. Ultimate party. As you can expect, some noise was happening as the friends excitedly played, but then someone, possibly a neighbor, decided to call the cops to put an end to their gaming ways – we’d call that a spoilsport right there, folks and obviously not a Smash Bros. fan.

With the cops turning up, the friends assumed that would be the end of their fun. Oh no, how wrong they were. Instead of the cops investigating the complaint, they asked them what they were playing and if they could join in too.

“I’m like, ‘Y’all wanna play Smash?!’ And two of them literally raised their hand and walked up. They’re like, ‘How do you jump?’ They were acting; one of them was playing Pikachu!” Jovante M. Williams says, obviously taken back that the cops knew how to play.

Mr. Williams recorded some footage and took to Twitter to post it:

On seeing the arrival of more police turning up, Willams said “Of course, you’d bring more cops” It was concerning. You see so many videos of terrible results. … I’m not trying to end up in jail or hurt, or have my friends harmed, or to start a commotion. But you know what? I heard the police asking ‘What Smash Brothers?’ Instead of something negative … it was something wholesome.”

One of the officers confirmed everything had been sorted out and they filed no charges on the friends just for having some fun. Take that, neighbor!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available on the Nintendo Switch. If you fancy hosting your own Smash Bros. party and maybe some cops will turn up, then head on over to Amazon now to pick up your copy.
