Riviera Beach Cops Raid 89-Year-Old Woman's House for Drugs, Find Nothing, Leave Big Mess

Riviera Beach Police busted into a home by shooting out the front windows and throwing a flash-bang grenade before pointing a gun at the homeowner in search of drugs and money. But turns out, they got the wrong house.

And the woman whose house they broke into and held at gunpoint was 89 years old.

Don't worry -- it gets weirder.
