NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Police detective Winston Harbin was honored by the New Orleans City Council at Thursday's meeting. The council announced a proclamation recognizing his contributions to Mardi Gras.

A Facebook video of Harbin and his partner, DeCynda Barnes, 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.

Barnes was also recognized by the council. The duo investigates cold-case homicides for the NOPD.

Harbin said that he also enjoys dancing to Cupid's ‘Cupid Shuffle' and Michael Jackson's ‘Dancing Machine.' He said his police officer uniform makes the dance happen.

This weekend, Harbin plans on cutting off his hair for the St. Baldrick's Foundation and he will participate in a Wobble contest.
