PROVIDENCE, RI - A former cop in road island known for his dance moves on the street is facing music of a different tune.

Providence police officer Tony Lepore says he was fired after leading a protest outside a Dunkin' Donuts.

 

Lepore wasn't trying to boycott sugar dough and sprinkles, but an employee there who wrote "black lives matter" on a cop's coffee cup.

Apparently, Lepore found that gesture hard to swallow, so he blew the whistle on it, and wanted the employee fired.

Providence Police Commissioner Steven Pare calls Lepore's protest a disservice to the department and the community, and says he misrepresented the force and was not allowed to speak on its behalf.

Apparently, Lepore has a fan base and they want to see more of his moves. He even sells his own dancing cop paraphernalia.

Looks like Lepore has no plans of getting off beat.
