LEBANON,TN (KTRK) -- One police officer is using his dance moves to break down barriers and bond with members of the community. Britton Winfree posted a video to Facebook that shows a Lebanon, TN officer, identified as Ariel Feroz Carrillo, dancing in front of his police car before hitting the ground to show off his break dancing moves.

Winfree said when Officer Carrillo and his partner, Tim Kelley pulled up at the BBQ, which was sponsored by his organization, Manhood 615 - he was a little concerned.

"I immediately thought to myself, 'aw man what now' thinking they must want to bother us in some way," wrote Winfree.

However, the exact opposite happened.

Officer Carrillo removed his service belt and decided to bust a move. He pulled out all break dancing fundamentals including a 6-step, flares and windmills. He even stuck around to teach some kids in the neighborhood how to break dance.
