Delray Beach Police Officer Is Elvis

Elwood's Dixie Bar B Que on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach rocks on Thursday nights, when Elvis impersonator Scott Ringersen is there...

Ringersen attracts such a big crowd, he has had to hire two people, just to stop customers from spilling onto Atlantic Avenue and blocking traffic... about 200 people attend each show at Elwood's, and he estimates about 40 percent are regulars...

On or off stage, with his black hair and long sideburns, even in his police uniform and dark sunglasses, Ringersen is unmistakably Elvis. But it hasn't presented a problem.

"My two careers never collide," he said.

In fact, his celebrity and appearance have helped him diffuse difficult situations, especially domestic disputes. "When I walk in, it works to my advantage. I'm not a police officer, I'm an entertainer who's also a cop," he said.

Ringersen can be seen at Elwood's Dixie Bar B Que at 301 E. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach every Thursday night. Performances start at 7:30 p.m. or 9:30 p.m., and there is no admission or cover charge...
