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

Investigators said Larson got out of the auto, but the vehicle started moving forward and a deputy had to jump inside and stop it. Larson also allegedly told the deputy he thought he was in Clearwater. The man then continues dancing along a line.

In the arrest report, the deputy said he saw the parked vehicle was running and the brake lights were on, but when he went up to the vehicle, he saw a man apparently asleep in the driver's seat.

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

After more twists, turns, side steps and full rotations, the video ends with Larson appearing to do something like walking lunges and squats in one final pass.

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