EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- (WTIC) -- The “Dancing Cop” is taking his routine over the river for Christmas.
Retired Providence police officer Tony Lepore gained national notoriety with his dance routines, which he started in 1984.
Rhode Island’s capital city told him he wouldn’t be needed to direct holiday traffic this year after he organized a protest last month outside a Dunkin’ Donuts where a worker wrote the “blacklivesmatter” hashtag on another officer’s coffee cup. Providence police say Lepore wrongly gave the impression he was speaking for the department.
