Eddy Khaodevanpheng, 22, was booked into Oklahoma County jail and later released, jail records show. A clerk at the Valero at 1001 W Sheridan Ave. called police about midnight Friday and said a man was causing a disturbance.
Police told the man to leave after he informed them he was fighting for the right to dance, and he "danced across the parking lot to the McDonald's where he stood and watched us while dancing," an officer wrote in the report. He then danced back across the parking lot to the Valero, where he was arrested.
When asked why he returned to the gas station, the man told police he was "following the leader," the report states. He said the arresting officer was the leader because he had a radio, pepper spray and a gun, and police replied by saying he was going to jail because he "didn't listen to the leader."
