Florida Man, every day with Kris and Chelsea at 6:50 and 7:50 am. Basically, what not to do with your life. Today’s darling decided to try to get out of a ticket by shakin’ his money maker at an unamused officer, who ends up just tasing him. BUT NOT BEFORE it was alllll caught on video by an onlooker.
As recent news out of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office will tell you, the law doesn’t look too kindly on dance moves. A Florida man found that out the hard way this week, when he was tased after twerking during a traffic stop on September 7.
In video captured by a passing motorist, Richard Wolfe of Crystal River rubs himself on the outside of his SUV while thrusting his hips at a police officer. The 57-year-old proceeds to get down and twerk before dancing into the traffic lanes of State Road 44 in Inverness.
At one point, Wolfe removed a knife from his waistband and tossed it into the grass.
“What are you scared of? I got knives, you got a gun!,” he yelled at the officers, per their arrest report.
Wolfe was initially pulled over for using the grass median and turn lanes to pass traffic. After being tased and arrested, he was booked on charges of resisting an officer without violence, fleeing from law enforcement after being ordered to stop and reckless driving in the Citrus County Jail.
