Video: Drugs police caught playing Wii during house raid

US police officers played Nintendo Wii video games while they raided a convicted drug dealer's home in central Florida.

Surveillance video obtained by WFLA in Tampa caught the officers playing a Wii bowling game.

Officials say officers could be disciplined.

Officers with the anti-drug task force had just stormed into the home of the convicted drug dealer, who was already in custody.

One Polk County sheriff's detective can be seen taking several breaks from cataloging evidence so she can bowl frames.

The officers did not know a video camera had been set up in the house before the March raid.

It is not known which officer won the game but one can be seen furiously jumping up and down in celebration following a strike.
