'Idol' Reject William Hung

Now Dropping Hits ...

With the Sheriff!!

11/6/2011 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

William Hung LA Police
William Hung can still draw an audience -- nearly 8 years after murdering  "She Bangs" on "American Idol" ... he's landed a sweet gig in law enforcement, of all places.

TMZ has learned Hung is now working for the L.A. County Sheriff's Department as a Technical Crime Analyst -- fancy name for a dude who crunches numbers to help prevent future crimes.

Just last week, William dropped some knowledge (above) at a training facility. Communication was always his strength.

I seriously thought he was mentally impaired!
Maybe it's high functioning autism!
Nice that he has a job - but I couldn't see taking anything he says seriously!

good for him- smart young man
he milked the silliness long enough to get some pretty good cash and then walked away and got an eduction and a life
too bad some others won't do the same thing
too late for the Jersey Shore crew- they're indelibly in our minds as immoral foul mouthed drunks
again I say--he knew when to walk away
smart young man!
wish him only the best in his life

High school graduates with badges must also be la fama putas. How can you have this douche who couldn't sing, seem a close to being a Chromosome 13 candidate and who butchered the english as anything in Public Safety? This is like having O.J. Simpson, Captain of the Sex Crimes Unit.

Good for him; if only all of the other reality show rejects could also continue with their lives after their two minutes of fame are up.

I love Hung. When I first heard him, it reminded me of walking through a darkened forest and you hear singing. There he is, among the roots of a tree. Tiny as a wood nymph. William Hung.

Good for him! Nice to see a wanna-be "celebrity" move on and have a good normal life with a worthwhile career. His kids and grandkids will love showing their friends the She Bangs video.
