While trying to flee is the most common tactic adopted by people facing DUI arrests, a Florida woman channeled her inner dancer to try and impress deputies so that they spare her a breath analyzer test, but it was a hard pass for the cops.

A bodycam footage released by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office shows Amy Harrington, 38, performing an Irish folk dance in front of the cops to prove her sobriety. The incident took place in the Madeira Beach area on April 27 and the footage was released on Aug. 27.

The Pinellas County deputies said that Harrington showed some "ballet and Irish folk dance moves" at the roadside while cops attempted to arrest her for rear-ending one vehicle roughly, WFLA-TV reported.

Deputies told the outlet that the woman had bloodshot, glassy eyes and dilated pupils and was asked to walk a straight line, "but she struggled to follow instructions, and was unsteady on her feet almost falling."

The video, filmed in a dark parking spot, shows Harrington clad in a black skirt and crop top, struggling to walk straight and tripping over on the fourth step. She then collects herself smartly, breaks into a dance number and goes wild with her moves within a minute. The arriving deputy, visibly fed up with her, is then heard saying: "Do you want to pay attention so I can give you the instructions?" to which Harrington gives a cheeky reply. "Yeah, well, you sound like my ballet coach."

"That wasn't good," the officer jokes. The video then shows an undaunted Harrington going on with her performance, waving her hands and dancing around the line as the cop stands unimpressed.

However, Harrington's efforts didn't bear fruits for her as she was charged with DUI, property damage and refusal to submit to testing. The woman had refused another DUI arrest in Pinellas County in 2019, New York Post reported.
