A Tennessee woman whose video went viral for dancing on top of a moving car in September has been charged with disorderly conduct.
Myscellent Shelton-Cox was taken to a Nashville jail Friday morning, according to WKRN. The 23-year-old was recorded twerking on top of a Mustang on Sept. 20.
She said in an interview that she decided to dance on top of the car that day because “there’s too many rules.”
“I take chances in life because at the end of the day, there’s too many rules,” Shelton-Cox said, admitting during the interview that she didn’t think she had done anything wrong. She also attributed her dancing skills to her time as a cheerleader when she was a child.
“We’d been sitting in traffic for 30 minutes, waiting on the train,” she continued. “I told my friend to drive my car, hopped on the car, did my little dancing and you know, just having a good time. I’m going to put on a little show, you know. I’m in traffic anyway. Why not turn up in traffic?”
The young twerker “was unrestrained and her actions were causing other motorists to divert their attention,” according to the arrest warrant. The police also state that she “caused undo hazard to other motorists,” which may or may not have been the case.
Shelton-Cox has already been bonded out of jail.
