Video: Former chief issues Running Man Challenge to CPD

Detroit Police challenges Cincinnati to 'Running Man' dance-off

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Former Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig issued a dance-off challenge the agency Monday.

The Detroit Police department posted a Facebook video showing officers dancing around the city as part of the 'Running Man Challenge.'

The viral challenge asks participants to film themselves dancing to Ghost Town Dj's 90s song 'My Boo.'

CPD accepted the challenged in a tweet Tuesday afternoon saying "it's about to go down in the Queen City."

Craig also called on Chicago, Philadelphia and Los Angeles departments to join the movement.

On Monday, the Lexington Police Department shared their own Running Man Challenge complete with a Kentucky-themed twist. The mounted patrol division got involved, showing off the horses dance skills.

Craig was the Cincinnati police chief from 2011-2013 before leaving to return as the top cop at his hometown police department in Detroit. He began his career there in 1977.
