SC police officer says 'watch this kid' as he pulls off nearly-perfect Michael Jackson impersonation

SC officer records kid dancing like Michael Jackson

GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A Greenville, SC police officer responded to a call over the weekend and instead of arresting anyone, he caught a "Smooth Criminal" in pursuit of some "Bad" dance moves in a now-viral video.

Officer Harrison with Greenville Police shot the video over the weekend, the post says.

"Watch this kid, he's really good," Officer Harrison said to the camera. "I'm on a call and this kid's got the moves."

The Facebook post shares more of 12-year-old Javon's skills and where he got a similar white glove the King of Pop made a key prop of his. The post says:

Ofc. Harrison took a call for service over the weekend. When he arrived, he met 12-year-old Javon, who has all Michael Jackson's moves from "Billie Jean."

When you encounter a talent like Javon, sometimes, the best thing to do is hit record on your phone, get out of the way and let him do his thing.

That white glove Javon's wearing, it's the one his grandfather wears when he ushers at church on Sundays. 

And Javon said he learned his moves from watching Ellen DeGeneres.

Harrison said these are the calls officers love to take!
