Suspected DUI driver dances throughout sobriety test in Florida

Bodycam video shows Florida man dancing during sobriety test

Police arrested a man for DUI in Holiday, Florida on February 6 after they say he danced during his field sobriety test and told police he believed he was driving in a different city.

Larson is accused of then getting out of the vehicle while his auto was still in drive.

Deputies said Larson also blew into a breathalyzer where he got a reading of 0.28 BAC.

The sheriff's office told WTVT that Larson's blood alcohol level when he was arrested was more than three times Florida's legal limit for driving.

He was later arrested on a charged of DUI and released from jail on his own recognizance, records show.

Larson told deputies he thought he was in Clearwater.

Larson spoke with FOX 13's Briona Arradondo over the phone.

In the arrest report, the deputy said he saw the parked vehicle was running and the brake lights were on, but when he went up to the vehicle, he saw a man apparently asleep in the driver's seat.

After turning a half cirlce, he appears to look at the deputy and sort of shrug, before completing the rotation and getting back to trying to walk the line. The deputy said the man's foot was on the brake pedal.

The man got out of the vehicle, but the deputy said it was still in drive and began to roll forward.

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

The deputy stopped the vehicle from hitting a gate by jumping in, himself, he said.

Footage from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office show a man, identified as 34-year-old Christoper Ryan Larson, dancing during a field sobriety test.

The incident took place near the intersection of Berry Hill Road and Grand Boulevard.
