'The Dancing Deputy' brings thousands a good laugh

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The life of a sheriff's deputy isn't always a glamorous one, but Deputy Rachael Higgins doesn’t let the sometimes-serious nature of her job stop her from getting down and boogying.

My favorite is the “running man” or “juju on that beat.”

Deputy Higgins was caught on camera at the Saginaw Spirit game Wednesday night cutting a rug with some kids.

She's now being called “the dancing deputy.”

“When the dance cam came on me I just couldn't stop so I just started from there and kids started coming along and dancing with me,” Higgins said.

In the video, you can see her showing off some classic dance moves such as the “sprinkler” and the “running man.”

Deputy Higgins said engaging with the community like this, especially kids, is one of the best parts of her job.

“It's very important for the public to know we're human, too, and we make mistakes and we also like to have fun and we're part of the community like they are. So, it's important they see that and it's why I do what I do,” she said.

She said she just moved to the area a few months ago and taking part in events helps her get to know the community.

It's also a chance for her to show off her moves.

“I'm not afraid of showing my silly side show,” Higgins said.
