A Florida man appeared to show off his dance moves during a sobriety test with deputies.

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

After he was awakened, Larson began to get out of the truck without putting it in park.

The suspect, identified as Christopher Ryan Larson, had a blood alcohol content of 0.28, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08, according to NBC 2 News.

After the tests, deputies arrested Larson on suspicion of DUI.

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

The body cam video shows Larson, wearing a white T-shirt, shorts and sneakers, striding along a straight line while periodically strutting his stuff.

Deputies say the driver was asleep at the wheel. Police say they spotted a truck parked with its brake lights on in front of a closed business. He is then told to continue until he feels he had completed the exercise.

The deputy said it took some knocking on the window and shouting for the man to wake up.

As Larson got out of the vehicle, according to deputies, it rolled forward as it was still in drive. At one point, Larson turns on one foot, as if performing a dance move and then begins bounce-walking in the opposite direction.

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.

Following all of this, the deputy asked Larson to submit to the field sobriety test.
