What's Working: Mobile Police officer's smokin' hot Mardi Gras moves

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) - A Mobile Police officer is showing off his dance moves in a smokin' hot way this Mardi Gras season.  Sgt. Jeremy March works security on Dauphin Street. He loves to dance with all the bands, and with a group called Brittany's Twirling Crew. The "Crew" twirls glow batons or fire batons in several parades throughout Mardi Gras.

This year, Sgt. March got brave and started twirling one of their fire batons! He had a blast, and the crowds loved it. He admits, though, it was a little scary.

"This is nylon uniform, is not fireproof. I asked if I could have a fire truck behind me this year,  and that didn't work out that well. It's a little scary."

Sgt. March admits that he might need a little practice,  so he stopped by rehearsals for Brittany's Twirling Crew.  Teacher Brittany Danford says the kids love having Sgt. March participate. "Every time the girls get so excited because he is part of our crew just a few moments. They love it. We look forward to it every year."

Sgt. March says he hopes by dancing with bands and dance teams, he shows the softer side of law enforcement. "I want to show them a lighter side of law enforcement that we aren't serious all the time."

Sgt. March danced with the girls in five parades this year.  Next year they have challenged him to two flaming batons.  We bet he can do it!
