Officer Deuntay Diggs was asked to dance Beyonce’s “Formation” with the students at North Stafford High School, Virginia, at their pep rally. They wanted him to repeat the moves he had shown on a viral video at a police charity event.
The officer said there was a lull which gave him the opportunity to surprise the teens, who screamed in excitement. A teacher shot the video and posted it on social media.
“Being called a celebrity was never really the goal,” Diggs told ABC News. “I feel like I’m just a regular person trying to do some positive in the community and help inspire others to go in the right path”.
“In my mind, I’m having fun with the kids and the faculty and I never thought it would take off like this,” he added.
