Officer Matt Mann and his colleagues responded to Iron Flat Mesa Park on Saturday to ask a group of about 200 people to stop sliding down the hill.

The slip ‘n’ sliders were using public water for the fun and officer told them the slide would kill the grass.

Before shutting everything down, to show camaraderie, Officer Mann decided to take a ride.

Douglas Muralha and Angela Driskill shared a video of his ride with ABC4.

The group says they plan to have another event on Pioneer Day; this time on private land.
