Va. Police Officer Deuntay Diggs Is Back in ‘Formation’

Officer Diggs went viral earlier this year after dancing to Beyoncé’s “Formation.” This weekend, he was the talk of a high school’s pep rally.


North Stafford High School in Stafford, Va., got a surprise performance over the weekend by viral dancing Police Officer Deuntay Diggs.

Earlier this year, Diggs went viral after performing his version of Beyoncé’s “Formation” at a school’s assembly. And this weekend he was back … in formation … at the high school’s pep rally.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, Diggs, who, according to WDAM, is the first openly gay deputy to serve at the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office, spoke about why he’s out dancing for students.

“The reason I’m doing this is to show kids that they can make it, that they can survive, that they can be successful,” Diggs said. “I’ve been very fortunate, at this time when people look negatively upon law enforcement, that I’m able to change that narrative and open up some conversations and engage with people.”
