A man in a coonskin cap is a great eyewitness

A police chase in Florida's Panhandle region has resulted in one of the more surreal eyewitness report interpretive dances recently caught on tape, complete with deadpan intro, male-model-grade stubble, and an honest-to-God coonskin cap.

Having now watched this video twelve times, I'm still not sure what happened with the chase itself — and increasingly don't care. What is perfectly clear, though, is that Carter Johnson is a gifted sort, a walking encyclopedia of Dixie pop-culture reference points and a man with a sublime talent for translating motion from the street through his soul into his arms. Reality may hit you hard, bro, but just the right mix of the Duke brothers, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Davy Crockett, and hippie hand dancing has a way of smoothing it all out.
