According to Fox 13, Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies spotted a man asleep while behind the wheel of a a parked vehicle.

Larson was charged with driving under the influence.

The video also shows Larson side-step out of place and point at a deputy. When asked how much he had to drink, Larson asked the deputies to make it easy on him.

When deputies were able to rouse him from his sleep, he left the vehicle but did not put it in park.


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

Authorities say a breath sample revealed that he had more than three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

In a telephone interview, Larson said he would not call his actions during the test "dancing" and declined further comment, the station reported. The man then continues dancing along a line.

When the officer found Larson asleep behind the wheel, he knocked on the window and shouted for some time before he finally woke up, according to Fox 13.


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

In bodycam footage provided by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, the man can be seen attempting to dance instead of performing various tasks as deputies conducted the test.

After it was all over, Larson admitted to having been drinking for hours, and said that he thought he was in Clearwater, which is about 20 miles south of Holiday, where Larson actually was.
