Detective doubles as DJ, dancer at Back to School Bash

SUMTER, SC (WIS) - One Sumter Police officer caught a little bit of dance fever and his smooth moves were caught on camera.

Lead detective Howie Austin, also known as "DJ Howie D," put his dance skills on full display recently at Tuesday's Back to School Bash in Sumter.

The Back to School Bash was held from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday. The free event, held in coordination with the City of Sumter and other local organizations and agencies, was held at Crosswell Park and provided food and free haircuts for the nearly 600 people in attendance. Officers also gave out junior police badges, played volleyball with kids and mingled with families throughout the day.

The purpose behind the event is to help local youth prepare for school and build enthusiasm for the upcoming academic year.
