A police officer in North Carolina showed off his moves in a video that has been viewed at least 9 million times.

The video posted to Facebook on June 18 shows a police officer dancing at a community event in Hickory, North Carolina.

The officer is Hickory Police Officer David Lee, and he was doing a dance called the "Wobble," NBC station WCNC in Charlotte reported. The police department and members of the Kappa League of Hickory gave out snow cones, hot dogs and coloring books and pencils to kids at the block party.

The owner of the video, Margo Carlton, says she's had dozens of online friend requests since the video became so popular.

"I just happened to show up and recorded the video. It just went viral," Carlton said. Hickory is a town of about 40,000 about 50 miles northwest of Charlotte.
