Tutu-wearing officer directs traffic

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A Cape Girardeau police officer wore a special new uniform for a good cause on Thursday.

Lieutenant John Davis lost a bet with some of his colleagues. They were competing over who could raise the most money for the United Way of Southeast Missouri. Davis lost, just barely, and had to direct traffic in a tutu at the department's fundraiser for the agency.

The police department set up shop at the city firing range with shooting matches, barbeque and more.

This year the police department says they nearly doubled their contributions to the United Way.
