GAHANNA, OH (WBNS/CNN) – Gahanna police were trying to figure out if 39-year-old Dale Bentley was drunk when he decided to dance his way through the field sobriety test.

"In my years in law enforcement, I've learned to never say I've seen everything because just when I say that, I see something I've never seen before. And Mr. Bentley is case and point to that," said Sgt. Ethan Moffitt, of the Gahanna Police.

Police say Bentley initially got their attention here on when he was driving 15 mph above the speed limit. When they tried to pull him over, Bentley allegedly kept going.

Authorities said when Bentley did stop, he appeared confused.

As officers try to confirm their suspicion he's intoxicated, Bentley decides to start dancing.

Come on man. If you want me to make your job really easy, I'll be like boop. What? Boop. I don't give a (expletive). I don't care. I'm not driving anyway," Bentley can be heard saying on the police cruiser dashboard camera.

Officers say it's no laughing matter.

"We know that when people especially when they are intoxicated they're unpredictable," Moffitt said. "Our concern is that he could fall over, hurt himself, fall out in traffic."

As officers try to finish their test, Bentley continues dancing until officers arrested him.

Bentley later told local media he did not remember dancing.

Police say Bentley's blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit at the time of his arrest.

He's facing several charges including drunken driving, fleeing from officers and speeding.

On Thursday, he pleaded not guilty to operating a vehicle under the influence.
