The "Chicken Dance" isn't just that annoying thing you have to do at your cousin's wedding anymore. Its powers have been used for evil.

44-year-old Shane Forsythe got pulled over in Port St. Lucie, Florida last month for driving around with one headlight, a busted windshield, and two bald tires.

After he stopped, he jumped out of his SUV and started doing the "Chicken Dance" as a diversion, so his friend could get away. It actually worked.

His friend took off running while the cops were distracted. Then they brought in a police dog and a helicopter to search for him, but still couldn't track him down.

They ended up finding a small amount of heroin in Shane's SUV. He claimed it was his friend's, but couldn't prove it and the guy was gone. Now he's facing felony drug charges.
