Breakdancing officer shines at TN community event


LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Tennessee police officer whose breakdancing skills helped him go viral earlier this year was at it again Tuesday night.

Ariel Carrillo, 22, was first spotted break dancing back in July at a mentoring event hosted by the Manhood Project.

He showed off his moves again Tuesday night at the Wilson County National Night Out against crime event.

Another officer stopped the mascot dance-off and said, “He wasn’t feeling it” and asked the crowd if they wanted to show off their skills.

Carrillo answered the call and the crowd went wild.

“I think it’s important for not just law enforcement but people on both sides of the spectrum to respect each other,” said Carillo. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
