WHEN TWO GROUPS of teenagers began fighting in Washington DC on Monday, they were ordered to stop by DC police officer.

That’s when 17-year-old Aaliyah Taylor walked up to the officer and began playing Silento’s Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).

While many officers may have reacted poorly, the officer, who has asked not to be named, met fire with fire and started an impressive dance off, with both whipping, Nae Nae-ing and stanky legging.

Taylor told the Washington Post that the incident is the first positive experience she’s had with police in her neighbourhood.

“I thought all cops were cruel because that’s how I saw them.

“I’ve now seen there are good cops out there.”
