Man suspected of stealing car from Miami school twerks in bond court

MIAMI (WSVN) - A man suspected of stealing a car from a Miami high school busted out his best dance moves when he appeared in bond court, Thursday morning.

Thirty-year-old Calvin Lloyd Griffith began twerking in front of Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Catherine M. Pooler. She was not amused, and set his bond at $18,500.

According to Miami-Dade Schools Police, Griffith was arrested earlier on Thursday, and charged in the carjacking of a vehicle parked at Miami Edison Senior High School.

Police said Griffith entered Miami Edison’s attendance office on Tuesday. Once he entered the office, he removed a person’s car keys from the counter belonging to a 2013 black Volkswagen Passat.

Moments later, he entered the Passat, drove out of the parking lot, and headed east on Northwest 62nd Street.

Surveillance footage recorded from the school helped police identify Griffith.

Griffith has been charged with burglary in an occupied dwelling, petit theft, third-degree grand theft auto and trespassing a school/school safety zone.
