An officer in Massachusetts is putting his own spin on policing.Donald Thomas, 81, has been on the force in Provincetown for 50 years now, but he hasn't slowed down a bit, especially when he's directing traffic.

His dance-like moves are entertainment to some, but Provincetown's police chief says Thomas is keeping the roads safe.
