'American Idol''s William Hung Working for LA County Sherriff's Department
The government found a spot on the payroll for the "She Bangs" singer—as a technical crime analyst.
America’s favorite American Idol auditioner has found a new gig – with the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department.
After his Season 3 audition performance in 2004 of Ricky Martin’s She Bangs, William Hung became a viral hit and received a cult-like following, which led him to numerous talk show appearances, three studio albums, and his primetime television show debut on Fox’s Arrested Development. Now, it appears Hung has made a career shift.
According to TMZ, Hung is working for the LA County Sherriff’s Department as a Technical Crime Analyst, meaning he is analyzing trends and patterns in crimes. This can help law enforcement deploy resources in a more effective manner, as well as playing a role in apprehending suspects, solving crimes, and formulating crime prevention strategies.
A photo obtained by TMZ shows Hung teaching in front of a class sometime last week at a training facility.
Before auditioning for Idol, Hung was a student at UC Berkeley, studying civil engineering.
