A Southern New Zealand town named Otago is dealing with some unusual problems after police frequencies were interrupted by various versions of NWA's infamous track "Fuck Tha Police." 

The songs were heard by the police while coordinating police response to a man pointing a gun at a motorist, citing that it was putting peoples lives in danger to interfere with their frequencies. 

Inspector Kelvin Lloyd explained further to the Otago Daily Times that "there's no question that if it carries on and if they do what they're doing it will delay a response. Any interference with a police radio constitutes a risk to public safety, and anyone caught doing this can face a penalty of criminal nuisance and up to one year imprisonment.”

 This is reportedly the second interference New Zealand has dealt with in recent months- someone broadcasted pig grunts and abuse through the police frequencies in the lower North Island.
