This is the moment two uniformed cops watch a pair of scantily-dressed young females twerking in the back of a patrol car and officials are now probing whether the women were underage.
The incident was filmed by one of the cops in the municipality of Santa Fe in the north-western Colombian department of Antioquia while a third officer drives the patrol car.
The footage was posted on Facebook by local media where it is going viral with 570,000 views.
The video shows the two officers touching the girls’ bottoms and stroking their hair as they perform a private twerk dance in the back of the patrol car.
One officer says: “Come on, she wants money. Watch her, watch her.”
Meanwhile, one of the ‘twerkers’ shouts: “Do that, shake your bum, the buttocks.”
Police spokesman Giovany Buitrago told local media that one of the officers has already been identified, adding: “We can tell the public that the police rejects all behaviour that harms the service and its discipline.”
The authorities are investigating the officers involved and are also establishing who the women were and whether they were underage, according to reports.
Netizen ‘Wanda Wanda’ commented: “No wonder they are always busy whenever they are called.”
‘Jhon Alexander Pino Jardines’ said: “National police, you have shamed our country.”
