Cop patrolling Latin festival steals the spotlight when he grabs woman to dance

June 11th, 2021

In today’s climate, a lot of cops get a bad rap. A few unfortunate events make people think that law enforcement is bad or different from everyone else. But in reality, they’re everyday humans like the rest of us.

One cop proved that at a Latin music festival. Before long, the whole crowd loved him. After all, he was pretty spectacular.

Off duty

It’s common for police officers to work special assignments outside of their departments, like providing security at ball games or walking around shopping malls. But for one cop, he did something incredible while off duty. Even though he was still in uniform, he made a surprise appearance.

He had to check it out

In the Los Angeles area, a special festival was taking place. Hearing the music, an LAPD motorcycle cop by the name of Booker decided to see what was going on. He’d finished his shift and decided to check it out and it’s a good thing he did.

Five seconds

That’s about how much time it took before Officer Booker found someone to dance with. Swept up in all the festivities, he was ready to go. And wow, this guy has some saucy salsa moves.

Natural rhythm

If you didn’t know better, you’d swear that Booker was Latino. He had all the right moves and then some. His partner had probably danced to Latin music all her life but this cop had no problem keeping pace with her while throwing in some sexy hip action.
