You know the epic dance move in Dirty Dancing, right? It’s when Patrick Swayze lifts Jennifer Grey above his head as if she were flying while “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” plays. The iconic dance move has been recreated in Crazy, Stupid, Love, in college bars all over the country, and, as of September 17th, 2018, at a Total Wine store in Florida.
According to TCPalm.com, Cindy Barrientos was arrested at a Total Wine store in Martin County, Florida when she and her girlfriend drunkenly tried to recreate the infamous lift in Dirty Dancing, and honestly, who among us hasn’t been wine drunk and thought, “Yeah, I can do the Dirty Dancing thing.” Just to reiterate, this didn’t happen at a bar, this went down at a Total Wine store. That’s like, a BevMo.
The store manager told police that “two individuals who were believed to be intoxicated and causing a disturbance [were] trying to re-enact a scene from the movie Dirty Dancing.”
The manager reportedly told the women to leave, but they reentered the building and tried to buy booze. Sadly, this story ended with Barrientos being arrested on a disorderly intoxication charge.

Hopefully Ms. Barrientos’s arrest hasn’t ruined her love of dancing and killer ’80s movies.
