A TikTok video of an unidentified paratrooper is under investigation after the U.S. Army says it violates safety policy.
The paratrooper smiles and drinks from a bottle of cranberry juice while Fleetwood Mac‘s “Dreams” play in the background. The video, which seems like it was uploaded by someone other than the paratrooper, is in reference to a video trend started by Nathan Apodaca, who uploaded a video drinking cranberry juice and listening to the same song while he skateboarded.

Col. Joe Buccino, a spokesman for the 18th Airborne Corps, said the matter was still being looked into.
“We’re looking into the matter to try to see what unit he may belong to, does the unit have a specific policy (related to safety), and was it violated,” Buccino said. “There is an airborne (standard operating procedure), but also unit-specific (standard operating procedures).”
