MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A week after being challenged to the #RunningManChallenge, the Shakopee Police Department has broken their silence.
The officers posted their response to the challenge on Facebook and Twitter early Wednesday morning.
On May 26, Eagan police tweeted a video of the challenge showing officers breaking into a dance during a “traffic stop.”
To clarify, it wasn’t a real traffic stop.
Shakopee responded Wednesday with a video showing several members from the department auditioning to be featured in the video, including McGruff.

They then called out the Eden Prairie and Bloomington Police Departments.
The #RunningManChallenge is an international phenomenon started by two teens from New Jersey, Kevin Vincent and Jerry Hall. The challenge is to post a video of the dance to Ghost Town DJs “My Boo.” It became popular when University of Maryland basketball players Jared Nicken and Jaylen Brantley joined in.
Eagan police said they wanted to bring it to Minnesota, and bring it they did.
