CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - - Police say a South Texas woman who is accused of driving drunk did her best Michael Jackson impersonation as she moonwalked during her sobriety test.

Corpus Christi police say Coral Rape was stopped after she drove down a street in the wrong direction early Friday morning.

Authorities say that when asked to perform a standard sobriety test, Rape "moonwalked" towards officers.

The 23-year-old was arrested and placed in the city detention center. Police say she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit for driving.

She faces a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated, which carries a sentence of up to a year in jail.

She is free on $1,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for her.
