You don't often get a whole lot of personality with police Twitter accounts. The boldest of them still tend to walk a respectfully cheeky line between provoking interdepartmental rivalry and cracking corny jokes about luring potheads with snacks.
But Sunday night, in throes of agony over the Vikings-Eagles NFC Championship game, Minnesota cop Twitter shook off some of its ultra-professional veneer and started snarking into the abyss with the rest of us. You can still taste the salt.

If you’re planning on drinking and driving tonight you better not because I’ve mounted a flat screen TV in the squad and I’m going to make you watch this game on replay all the way to jail. #DontDrinkAndDrive #MINvsPHI #Vikings pic.twitter.com/UQQIxO6YXE— Wyoming (MN) Police (@wyomingpd) January 22, 2018
