Bodycam video shows Florida man dancing during sobriety test

Pasco County Sheriff's deputies saw a vehicle running with its lights on in front of the gate of a closed Holiday business around 1:23 a.m. Tuesday.

The suspect, identified as Christopher Ryan Larson, had a blood alcohol content of 0.28, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08, according to NBC 2 News.

Larson appears to bust out some fancy dance moves to evade arrest - but needless to say, the deputy was not impressed.

The deputy said it took some knocking on the window and shouting for the man to wake up.

Before the video began, authorities said they found Larson in his parked vehicle, which was running.

The man got out of the vehicle, but the deputy said it was still in drive and began to roll forward. A deputy reportedly had to jump in the vehicle to stop it from causing damage.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office released video from a deputy's body camera that shows a man breaking into dance steps during the test.

At one point in the tests, Larson was instructed to walk heel-to-toe across a piece of tape stretched out on the ground.

When asked if he knew where he was, Larson said he was in Clearwater - which is about 16 miles south of Holiday. Larson also allegedly told the deputy he thought he was in Clearwater.

In one part of the video, a deputy is heard asking Larson if he is done with the test, to which Larson responds "No not really", before he continues.

Larson told FOX 13 he would not call what he did dancing and declined to comment further.
