Dancing is a crime ... according to some New York City police officers. Fox and Friends reported that a couple in their fifties were arrested because they were dancing while waiting for the subway. Reportedly, they had just gone to hear jazz at Lincoln Center and were doing the Charleston while waiting on the subway platform. They say police officers approached them and said they weren’t allowed to dance on the platform. Officers asked for ID, but when the woman could only produce a credit card that had her picture and signature on it, the cops ordered the pair to go with them.
