Traffic direction with a twist

You know its the holidays when the dancing cop returns to the streets of Providence, Rhode Island.

Retired police officer Tony Lepore was out today busting a move while moving along traffic.

Lepore has entertained the streets of Providence since 1984 and keeps the tradition alive today.

The 66-year-old was a full time police officer for 17 years and retired in 1989.

Because of his world renowned popularity he was re-sworn in as a part time officer and a full time performer in 1991.

Along with commercials, Lepore has appeared in the movie "Hecatomb" and in the TV pilot "Bread, Butter & Bullets."
