One never knows what kind of talent is hidden beneath those blue uniforms… every now and then, an opportunity arises to unleash it.
A group of teenage girls in DC found out pretty quickly that one of the female officers, patrolling their streets, has some pretty serious dance moves. She showed them off in the middle of the street as the “Nae Nae” song played in the background, and an impressive dance-off ensued.
The officer was trying to disperse the crowd after a group of teens had to be broken up following a fight.
17-year-old Aaliyah Taylor said the officer told the group that if the teens won the dance-off, they could stay. ‘If the officer won, they’d have to leave.’
Facing each other the entire time, the cop and high school senior danced for a few minutes, “stanky leg and all.”
The officer was not joking when she said she had “far better dance moves” than Taylor. The forty pounds of equipment did not stop her. Her improvisational dance skills were superb.
And apparently she has more stamina. Taylor said the officer would have kept going, but she got tired.
“Instead of us fighting, she tried to turn it around and make it something fun,” Taylor said. “I never expected cops to be that cool. There are some good cops.”
As the video went viral, Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted: “DC has innovative ways” to keep the city safer and stronger.
The officer in the video said she did not want to be identified because she didn’t want to make the story about her, according to the Washington Post.
“It’s kind of embarrassing that this became so big,” she said. “This is what we do every day.” The officer has been with the force for about three years and recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq, the Post reports.
The D.C. police union secretary said “these sorts of personal interactions between officers and residents aren’t unusual — it’s just that most don’t make it to the Internet….we are humans just like everyone else,” he said.
