A 911 Call Turns Into A Dance Battle For A Cop In Canada

The police officer is a former member of a dance troupe ... with the moves to prove it.

A constable in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, responding to a 911 call of a fight in progress found himself in a different kind of battle when he arrived at the scene. According to CBC News, Const. Jarrod Singh of the Durham Regional Police Service responded to an emergency call in downtown Oshawa, only to find that it was actually a Vivid Media film crew shooting a dance video with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology's dance team.

"I saw eight people gathered around one person, so I can see how a member of the public thought it was a fight," Singh told CBC News "But when I got closer I could see he was break dancing in the middle and there was someone filming it."

After making sure that no one was harmed, Const. Singh, a former member of Durham College's dance troupe, joined the crew for an impromptu dance battle, which was later posted to Facebook.


The video, which has received more than 1 million views so far, gathered accolades for Const. Singh's decidedly unconventional approach to community policing. He took to his Instagram account to thank the community for their messages of support and kindness.
