Dancing cop back on the streets, bringing joy to commuters this Christmas

Posted: Updated:
PROVIDENCE, RI - Rhode Island's dancing cop is back on the streets for the holidays. 

Retired police officer Tony Lepore entertains drivers and pedestrians at a Providence intersection from noon to 1:30 p.m. every day from now until Christmas.


The 66-yr.-old started dancing in the streets in 1984 while directing traffic.  The city invited him back after he retired for a special holiday treat. 

He's also taken his show on the road as a performer appearing at schools and on national TV.
