Florida man tasered and arrested after twerking under the rain in traffic
A Florida man twerked under the rain on the road instead of cooperating with deputies during a wild traffic before being arrested.
The funny incident that took place on Tuesday morning was caught on camera. Richard Wolfe got out of his SUV and started his dance on State Road 44 in the city of Inverness of Citrus County when the deputies stopped him for reckless driving. The reckless driver-dancer turned out to be 57-year-old Crystal River.
The video shot by a bystander was shared on social media.
The twerking went on in front of one of the deputies before the second deputy arrived and tried to arrest River. As the man resisted, the deputy had to pull out his Taser and use it on the man. He was then taken into custody after a short confrontation with cops even after being tasered.
“He then began challenging this detective, stating, ‘What are you scared of? I got knives, you got a gun!’” one of the deputies wrote in the report.
River was charged with resisting an officer without violence, fleeing an officer during a traffic stop and reckless driving, jail records show.
