13YO Gives Up Playstation To Cops

From Post Falls PD Day & Swing Shift report via Facebook re: juvenile problem on 3rd Ave: "Mother called police because her 13 year old son would not stop playing his Playstation 3 after being asked several times to turn it off. The mother asked if police would come to the residence and assist her in getting her son to turn the game off and give her the gaming system. Police arrived on scene and were able to assist the mother by educating the 13 year old on Idaho Law and respect for his mother. After a short conversation he kindly gave up his gaming system without argument." Complete Day/Swing Shift report here.

Question: Is this something that you call the police for?
