ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
A holiday favorite in Rhode Island has returned. The dancing officer is back on the streets, entertaining drivers and pedestrians.
Retired officer Tony Lepore started dancing in the streets in downtown Providence in 1984 while directing traffic.
After retirement, he was invited to return by the city to direct traffic during the holidays.
He can be seen on the streets during the weekday from noon to 1:30 PM through Christmas Eve.
