A Florida woman was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after a newly released video from deputies shows her appearing to do an Irish jig during a traffic stop.
The video, just released by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, shows 38-year-old Amy Harrington’s sobriety test after she was pulled over on April 27.
In the criminal complaint filed in Pinellas County, deputies said that Harrington was involved in an accident where she rear-ended another vehicle.
Noting her slurred speech and smell of alcohol, deputies began to conduct sobriety tests.

In the video, the deputy administering the test can be heard asking Harrington to walk on a line, saying, “Do you want to pay attention so I can give you the instructions?” WFLA reported.
An agitated Harrington can be heard responding, “Oh my God, you sound like my (expletive) ballet coach.”
After attempting several steps, Harrington leaps into a dance that resembles both ballet and an Irish folk dance, WFLA reported.
In the affidavit, Deputies said that the contents of a white foam cup in the car tested positive for alcohol.
