Police officers are showing off their lip-syncing abilities and posting their videos to Twitter, Facebook and the like.Â

But Del Rio police officer Oscar Gonzalez upped the game, and may have won the battle. Instead of just lip-syncing, he sang his entry into the contest.Â
Spartansburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright put his own law-enforcement spin to the challenge. He performed Soggy Bottom BoysâÂ âIn the Jailhouse Now.â His backup âsingerâ was his son Andy Wright adding the yodeling accompaniment. The entry has had more than 245,000 views since posting late Thursday.
