Police Corporal Alan Jones said he had never tried Double-Dutch rope jumping, but a double-dare got him to give it a try.
He was a natural, despite being weighed down with full gear and a vest, jumping with the ease of a ten-year-old.
The video of Corporal Jones jumping twin ropes at the church community event in Prince George’s County, Maryland quickly made the rounds on social media.
Turns out, Corporal Jones skips rope for aerobic training and, as a community policing officer, plays the occasional pickup basketball game with people in the neighborhood.
“I’ve always found that people get a kick out of a police officer if they’re just a little more human,” Officer Jones told WUSA News.
