An Ellen DeGeneres dance challenge, which centers around people doing fun dances behind unsuspecting strangers, took a brutal turn as a fan attempted to dance behind a New York City police officer who didn’t take kindly to his moves.

Like a bad scene out of Footloose, the Free Thought Project notes, YouTube personality Alexander BOK danced behind several folks before attempting the dance dare behind an officer on Christmas Eve. The officer busts BOK, who, according to video footage posted by the Free Thought Project, readily admits that he was dancing, to which the police officer replies, “F–k you doing behind me?”

BOK is then pushed against a police van and surrounded by three officers, and the following exchange can be heard:

Officer: Are you f–king kidding me? What’s wrong with you?

BOK: I’m dancing.

Officer: What are you dancing in the street for?

An officer’s hand appears to grab BOK’s neck. An officer asks again, “What the f–k is wrong with you?”

A fourth officer joins the fray.

During the altercation, the video fades to black. Words appear on the screen indicating that BOK explained to the officers in detail exactly what he was doing but they continued to insult him. The video then continues:

Officer: Are you f–king kidding me, bro? Are you a f–king a–hole?
