Man dances his way through roadside sobriety test, charged with DUI

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.

Larson was arrested for drunk driving after he was found asleep in his still-running truck.

After the tests, deputies arrested Larson on suspicion of DUI. A breath sample showed Larson had a.28 BAC at the time, deputies say - more than three times the legal limit.

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

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

As Larson got out of the vehicle, according to deputies, it rolled forward as it was still in drive.

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. A deputy had to jump inside and hit the brakes to avoid crashing into a fence. At one point, Larson turns on one foot, as if performing a dance move and then begins bounce-walking in the opposite direction.

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

"Are you done now?" asked one deputy as he continued to dance.

Larson told FOX 13 he would not call what he did dancing and declined to comment further. When asked how much he had to drink, Larson asked the deputies to make it easy on him.
