You could say she was trying to have "the time of her life."
A Florida woman was arrested last month trying to reenact a scene from the '80s classic film “Dirty Dancing” while inside a liquor store, Treasure Coast Newspapers reported Thursday.
Cops responded to a Sept. 17 call about two women allegedly causing a disturbance inside Total Wine & More in Jensen Beach, Florida, according police report obtained by Oxygen.com.
The two women -- Cindy Barrientos, 24, and Mary Crombie, 25 had been refused service that evening, the store’s manager told police. Undeterred, the two began trying “to reenact a scene from the movie ‘Dirty Dancing.’” The report didn't note which particular scene. The women were told to leave the business, which they apparently did, but not for long. They both re-entered the liquor store, the manager told police. The second time around, Crombie was escorted out without further incident, police say.
Barrientos allegedly became irate. Police say they found sitting inside her vehicle where she “became belligerent with deputies” when they arrived. They instructed to hand over her car keys. Deputies noted in their report that she had bloodshot eyes and smelled of booze. When police cuffed Barrientos, they said she yelled for her friend to bring her belongings to her.
Barrientos was charged with public intoxication, a misdemeanor, and booked into the Martin County Jail. It’s unclear if she was "put in a corner" cell. She was later released on $400 bond, according to TC Palm. She is scheduled for an Oct. 11 court appearance.
A quote on her Facebook page states, "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
