An Appleton officer has gone viral on social media after the department posted a video of him leading the Appleton East student section during a football game Friday.

School Resource Officer Taschner went up to the student section during the game, and it appeared they might get in trouble, according to a Facebook post by the Appleton Police Department.

"NO FUN ZONE?" the post reads. "Just when it looked like SRO Taschner was breaking up the fun during the Appleton East Football game, expectations changed."

Officer Taschner then led the student section in a cheer.
