Around 10pm, I see red and blue lights through my window. I look outside, and I see 7 cop cars (and a bike) in front of my house. There are 8 cops standing around in a circle, laughing -- I'm concerned because I bought this (my first) home only months ago.
I go out and from a distance have the following dialogue:
me: "Is everything okay?"
cop1: "It's okay, was just a shark attack."
cop2: "We caught the bad guy."
And they turned back around to their group, barring me from further conversation.
Did I just have a run-in with an arrogant group of officers, or am I in the wrong here? Can I legally pursue the question of "Hey, what's happening here?" Are they not required to inform me if I ask?
Edit: I live in west Florida, if that's relevant. I could see it possibly being based on local laws?
