    Authorities say a 20-year-old Pasco County man has been arrested after dancing on the hood of his car with a half-empty bottle of brandy in his hand and later threatening a deputy.

    The Tampa Bay Times reports that a Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputy saw Emanuel Figueroa dancing atop his car on Sunday night in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven.

    The deputy says the man jumped down, tried to hide the liquor and refused to identify himself. The deputy determined that Figueroa was younger than 21, and tried to arrest him. The deputy says Figueroa resisted and later tried to spit on him.

    Figueroa is facing several charges, including assault on a law enforcement officer and minor in possession of alcohol.

    It is unclear whether Figueroa has an attorney.
