COLUMBUS, OH (WCMH) - Columbus’ own dancing cop is back at it again.
Officer Anthony Johnson became internet famous in 2015 when he was caught on camera dancing with some local children. The video quickly went viral and Ofc. Johnson has become a role model for kids and a motivational speaker in the years since.
On Saturday, Ofc. Johnson took to the stage at the Columbus Commons’ Summer 614 concert to bust a move.
NBC4 spoke to Ofc. Johnson last year after he was invited to speak about community policing at Harvard University for a second time. He told us his message is very clear:
“Behind this badge is a human heart, just like yours,” he said. “We care for our communities, which is why we are police officer.”
Ofc. Johnson said makes an effort to connect with the people he is sworn to protect and serve, even if it’s showing off his sweet moves for just a few minutes.
