NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans police detective Winston Harbin took the internet by storm when he line danced his way into the hearts of Mardi Gras revelers while getting down to "Wobble" by V.I.C.

Now, another NOPD officer's video is getting some online attention. The officer, identified as Derrick Melder, was on the Uptown parade route Sunday afternoon along Napoleon Avenue. A second line started "Cha Cha Slide" between the Thoth and Bacchus and Melder joined in the fun.

According to the NOPD, Melder has been with the department for at least 10 years. When he is not on patrol during Mardi Gras, Melder is assigned to the NOPD's Central Evidence and Property Division.

Last year, a Facebook video of Harbin doing the Wobble during Endymion went viral.

The video had hundreds of thousands of shares just days after it was posted. His dancing gained worldwide attention and he became an instant celebrity on the streets during the carnival season.
