Good Morning,

Warm weather meant this year’s iteration of Palmer Fest was rowdy, but students weren’t the only ones having fun.

A Post reporter snapped a picture of a whole line of mounted police officers, better known as horse cops, dabbing. Feast your eyes:

Another Twitter user, @taysackett, captured a video of one particular officer dabbing. 

When they weren’t dabbing, police from various departments were shutting down parties relatively early due to crowd size, APD Police Chief Tom Pyle told The Post. A total of 25 people were arrested during the festivities.

David Descutner, OU’s interim president, visited the fest for the first time Saturday. He said it was “lively.”
