Chicago, IL – Chicago police officials are investigating after a cell phone video of three women twerking atop a moving Chicago police SUV went viral over the weekend (video below).
The video was shared to social media on Saturday and had gone wildly viral by Sunday morning, WBBM reported.
It showed a Chicago police vehicle inching through a crowd of people on the street as three women climbed onto the hood and roof of the vehicle.
The crowd at the intersection held up cell phones to film the scene as the chaos unfolded.
Once atop the police SUV, the women began twerking to the screams of the crowd on the street.
The video showed one woman was on her hands and knees on the hood of the vehicle with her rear end facing the windshield while another woman stood on the hood directly in front of the windshield, bent over and holding onto the roof.
A third woman was on her hands and knees on the roof of the SUV shaking her rear end, the video showed.
In the video, the officer in the passenger seat reaches a hand out of the window and made what appeared to be gesture that indicated the women should get off of the vehicle.
But the video showed that the police vehicle kept moving even when three women were riding on it.
It was unclear where or when the incident occurred, WBBM reported.
Sources said the officers in the SUV said the women had asked to dance beside the police vehicle and take pictures, but had not been granted permission to get onto the vehicle.
Chicago police said the incident was under investigation, WBBM reported.
Chicago Police Department Deputy Director Tom Ahern told Newsweek that the department was aware of the video “showing several females riding on a marked squad car.”
Ahern said the investigation was ongoing.
