Walking through Pasco sports bar one night last week, two policemen decided to do something unusual.
And it’s going viral.
Officers Kevin Frantz and John D’Aquila took to the karaoke stage at The Dugout for their rendition of Every Breath You Take.
It’s a song recorded by, who else? The Police.
Never miss a local story.
“Every breath you take. Every move you make. Every bond you break. Every step you take. I'll be watching you,” sang the uniformed officers from a dark corner of the bar.
“Someone probably asked if they were there to sing a song,” said Capt. Ken Roske. “And, they did.”
A cellphone captured the duet and it was posted on the Pasco police Facebook page. From there it began to go viral and was recently shown on ABC World News Tonight with David Muir. By Monday, it had nearly 53,000.
“It’s been good,” Roske said about the public reaction. “This is the stuff police do all the time but it doesn’t go public until it hits social media.”
“If they have the occasion to talk and communicate with the public, we want them to do that. If that means grabbing a microphone for a couple of minutes, so be it,” he said.
Follow officers have had their fun with it, too.
“I did ask them for an autograph,” said Roske.
