Prichard Police officer dancing video goes viral

PRICHARD, AL (WALA) -

A Prichard police officer has some pretty good dance moves. Marshae White caught Officer Casey Chumney on video dancing with her daughter and posted it to Facebook Saturday. The video picked up steam and has been shared all over the country. We spoke with Officer Chumney about his new found fame.

In just days he's gone from a police officer to a viral sensation.

"It's very humbling and it somewhat surreal," said Officer Casey Chumney.

Chumney says the past few days have been interesting.

"I never in a million years imagined anything anything to this magnitude or scale it's been pretty wild actually," he said.

Officer Chumney says as he rides down the streets of Prichard, it's not uncommon for him to stop and play some basketball or even break out into dance.

This is Officer Chumney dancing with Armani Trip, a little girl he stopped to dance with Saturday.

"We did a 'little stinky leg action.' She did better than I did. Then some bop but before that we need the whole 'whip and nae nae,' we did the whole 'juju on that beat.' I tried to give them some of that 'soulja boy' but they didn't want to do that with me. I guess it's too old for them," he explained.

Although the popularity is nice, Chumney says this is simply another part of his call to duty.

"We don't do this line of work for any kind of notoriety or anything like that. We want to help people but I feel like if we can bridge any kind of gap there is, with a positive community way that's what I want to do," he added.

And with a duty to protect and serve, Officer Chumney is serving up some dance moves.

Officer Chumney is a 6 year veteran police officer. He's been at the Prichard Police Department for about 5 months.
