Bodycam video shows Florida man dancing during sobriety test

On Tuesday, deputies say they spotted the 33-year-old driver asleep at the wheel with his foot on the brake.

The move was a fail as deputies charged him with DUI anyway.

Larson had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of.28, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, which is more than three times the legal limit in Florida, and most states, of.08.

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 driver, identified as Christopher Larson, was told to unlock the vehicle and put it in park.

The man got out of the vehicle, but the deputy said it was still in drive and began to roll forward. A deputy had to jump inside and hit the brakes to avoid crashing into a fence.

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 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.

Deputies started having Larson perform field sobriety exercises.

Larson reportedly told Fox that he would "not call what he did in the video dancing", but did not comment further on the arrest.

After his arrest, police said Larson admitted to drinking for several hours.

The deputy asks Larson if he is 'complete with the exercise, ' but he just mumbles and continues his shuffle.

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