VIDEO: Eufaula police get 'crossed over' during friendly basketball game

EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) - A simple pick-up game of basketball is helping Eufaula, AL police officers build stronger relationships with the community.

The police department shared a video of two patrol officers playing a friendly game of basketball with two young men.

At one point, one of the officers gets 'crossed over' and falls to the ground.

One of the boys involved in the pick-up game shared the video on social media.

Officer Jonathan Holbrook, one of the officers seen in the video, says his job is "not all about making an arrest or writing a ticket."

He says he loves being there for the community even if it means getting beaten in a game of basketball.
