A friendly lip-sync competition is heating up on social media among law enforcement agencies across the country.
Police officers are showing off their lip-syncing abilities and posting their videos to Twitter, Facebook and the like.
It appears the latest viral performances started in Texas about two weeks ago as a mic drop between the Bexar County Sheriff's Office and the San Antonio Police Department, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Alexander Mena of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office lip-synced "Fuiste Mala." His video has more than 1.4 million views.
