Bodycam video shows Florida man dancing during sobriety test

Adjust Comment Print

A man deputies suspected of driving under the influence could not dance his way out of an arrest, but body camera footage shows him spinning and bobbing his way through part of his field sobriety test.

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

According to an arrest report, Christopher Larson forgot to put the truck in park when he unlocked the door and began to get out.

He then consented to a breathalyzer test and deputies say he blew a.28 (blood alcohol content) which was more three times than Florida's legal limit of.08. He also told deputies he though he was in Clearwater. The deputy said the man's foot was on the brake pedal.

When asked to walk a straight line, Larson begins side-stepping and bouncing in the manner of a man who is unaware he is about to be taken to jail.

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

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

A Sheriff's deputy said he knocked on Larson's window and shouted before Larson responded by waving at the deputy, while appearing disoriented.

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

When asked if he knew where he was, Larson said he was in Clearwater - which is about 16 miles south of Holiday.

The deputy administered a field sobriety test and asked Larson to complete some simple tasks to demonstrate his motor control - but instead Larson busted a couple moves.
