“It was such a great feeling to see him dancing and showing that police officers have a “human side” to them,” Christina Cook told the Press Association.

She had been at the Colleton County Rice Festival with her family.

“With all the negative in the news, it was great to see an officer being so friendly and positive.

“I never intended for the video to go viral. I originally posted it to Facebook so the officer could see it, and I wasn’t sure who the officer was at the time and I knew someone in my town would know who it was so it would eventually get back to him.

“Well, it got to him, and very quickly too!

“It’s definitely been a happy experience to see so many people enjoying my video just as much as my girls and I enjoyed watching him dance.

“It’s a moment I’ll never forget!!”
