NYPD Commissioner Plays Down Dirty Dancing at Parade

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says he wishes NYPD officers hadn't done some provocative dancing with women at last week's West Indian Day Parade.

But in a radio interview on Tuesday, Kelly also said he didn't want to make too much of it.

The homemade video posted online shows women in skimpy costumes rubbing themselves against patrolmen. One set of officers doesn't respond. But two others appear to join in dirty dancing as revelers cheer and laugh.

Kelly said it wasn't unusual for police assigned to patrol the parade to get caught up in its rowdy spirit.

An NYPD spokesman declined comment Tuesday on a report that a disciplinary unit was reviewing the tape.
