'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.

He beat here on a Hollywood's most powerful list several years ago.. He became a cop and she keeps going to jail...

The power struggle continues...!

Can anyone say "Here is where you are most likely to catch Lindsay Lohan doing something illegal"..

I enjoyed William's performances. He had a certain genuine presence that made him enjoyable to watch. I wish him the best.

Maybe if he had done that first he could have calculated his odds and avoided the stage altogether!

hey, at least he has a well paying job and a legitimate career ahead of him unlike the majority of reality tv rejects (and many of the winners too)
