Facebook Dallas PD, Dallas Mavericks

In Dallas Wednesday night, the police kept law and order, and then some.

At halftime of the Rockets-Mavericks preseason game, the Mavs Dancers and Mavs ManiAACs (Mavericks' big man dance troupe) took the floor for what appeared to be a dance battle. But when things got feisty, the Dallas Police Department showed up.

Then it was time for the officers to bust a move.

Could the NBA's first police dance team be in the making?
