On further inspection, they found the 33-year-old man asleep in the driver's seat with his foot on the brake.

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

The deputy then asks, 'Are you complete with the exercise?' and it sounds as though Larson says, 'no, ' before continuing to groove down the line.

The sheriff's office told WTVT that Larson's blood alcohol level when he was arrested was more than three times Florida's legal limit for driving.

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

Investigators said Larson got out of the auto, but the vehicle started moving forward and a deputy had to jump inside and stop it.

The man got out of the vehicle, but the deputy said it was still in drive and began to roll forward. One officer had to quickly jump in and hit the brakes so the vehicle wouldn't hit a gate in front of it.

The deputy administered a field sobriety test and asked Larson to complete some simple tasks to demonstrate his motor control - but instead Larson busted a couple moves. At one point, Larson turns on one foot, as if performing a dance move and then begins bounce-walking in the opposite direction.

He was eventually arrested and told the deputy that he thought he was in Clearwater, Florida - not Holiday.

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

At that time, Larson seemed disorientated and waved to the police officer, the arrest report says.
