A video of a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department police officer dancing with 3 young in the Bolden Area Command is going viral.

Khalilah Walker says her sons, Akai and Saif OKeefe, and their friend Shane made a $100 bet to find a police officer willing to dance with them.

Officer Joshua Melvin's wife says that he was sitting in his patrol car when he was approached by the young men.

He immediately got out of his car and began dancing with them.

Walker filmed the dance and posted in on Facebook. The Bolden Area Command shared the video and Melvin's wife shared on Twitter.

The video has now gone viral with thousands of views. They are now challenging others to participate in the #goodcopchallenge.
