Cops: DUI Suspect Broke Out Dance Moves During Roadside Sobriety Tests

A Florida Woman suspected of drunk driving performed “multiple ballet and Irish folk dance moves” while undergoing field sobriety tests after rear-ending a vehicle late Wednesday evening, cops report.

Amy Ann Harrington, 38, was arrested on a DUI charge following a crash near her residence in Madeira Beach, a city 10 miles from St. Petersburg. Police allege that Harrington “showed multiple signs of impairment during roadside sobriety tests.”

Harrington smelled of alcohol, had “slurred speech,” and “was unsteady on her feet,” police charge. When asked to perform one-leg stand and walk-and-turn tests, Harrington instead broke out her cross-disciplinary dance moves, according to an arrest affidavit.

Harrington, who refused to take a breath test, was charged with a pair of misdemeanors and booked into the county jail (from which she was released yesterday on $650 bond).

Pictured above, Harrington, who works at a St. Petersburg bar & grille, was arrested for DUI in 2019 following a car crash. She subsequently copped to a reduced charge of reckless driving and was sentenced to 12 months probation and 50 hours of community service.

In the new case, a date has not been set for the roadside ballerina to appear for arraignment and enter a plié.
