Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Lip Sync Challenge

A new video featuring the top three officials in the Mohave County Sheriff’s office has gone viral on social media. Sheriff Doug Schuster takes the lead role in lip-syncing Johnny Horton’s Battle of New Orleans song released in 1959.

With toilet plungers stuffed over the nozzles of their rifles, Chief Sheriff’s deputy Dean McKie and Undersheriff Ed Trafecanty join Sheriff Schuster in a lip-sync video performance that runs a little more than three minutes.

 “Believe it or not, looking at our stellar dance moves there was no choreographed movement whatsoever. It was completely contemporaneous,” the Sheriff said.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said the “lip-synch challenge” videos featuring law enforcement officers are popping up all across the country. She says there’s no fundraising associated and that it’s just officers of different ranks from different agencies enjoying some good natured fun.

Schuster said the video drew 2-million views in the first 16 hours it was posted.

“It’s crazy. I’ve got family back east. I’ve got people calling me from all over the place,” Schuster said. “It’s refreshing to know and shocking to see how many people viewed that little video.”

Mortensen said some of the agencies that make the videos challenges other agencies to do the same. And Sheriff Schuster has laid down the gauntlet challenging heads of other local law enforcement agencies to get their creative juices flowing.

Schuster said he has high expectations for his former high school pal, Bullhead City police Chief Brian Williamson. “He actually has a tremendous sense of humor so if he picks the right song I see him turning out a very cool product,” Schuster said.

Deputy Kingman police chief Rusty Cooper said he enjoyed the Sheriff’s trio and credited them with a job well done.

 “I was awfully entertained by it,” said Kingman DPS commander Jamie Clark said of the video. “I don’t know that we’ll do one, but we’ll wait and see.”

“We enjoyed it. It was actually a lot of fun. And what I like about it is that it shows the other side of the department,” Schuster said. “We have changed the culture at the sheriff’s office. We’re all about interacting with the public and this was great because it shows the average person that we’re just people. We’re trying to do the best job we can but we like to have fun too. It’s a win-win for us.”
