As traffic jam incidents go, few have been wilder: motorists were treated to a twerking (+ splits) session on a moving Mustang, while pulling out from a level crossing in Antioch in Nashville, Tennessee.

Because this is a video of a woman twerking on the roof of a moving car, it went viral. Now, the woman in question, identified by WKRN as Myscellent Cox, says she’s terrified she might have done something stupid that could land her in jail. Believe it or not, but Cox had no idea that car surfing, or car twerking for that matter, was against the law.

You can see one of the videos shot by fellow motorists at the bottom of the page. After it went viral on social media, WKRN tracked down Cox and asked her what exactly she was thinking when she pulled such a stunt. She says she did it because she a rule-breaker who likes to take chances, and because she saw the perfect opportunity to “turn up” in traffic.

The older-model Mustang is her own car, she says. She and a friend had been stopped at the level crossing, waiting for the train and, when they started to pull out, she jumped at the chance to do something different. And that she did.

Cox swears there was nothing risky about her stunt: she says they were driving at 20mph, at the most, and that they had their hazard lights on. She insists her background as a cheerleader gives her whatever balance she needs to be able to twerk on the roof of a moving car without being in actual danger. Plus, she wanted to have some harmless fun.

However, there is nothing harmless about car surfing. There is a reason why you’re not supposed to ride on the roof of moving vehicles, and that reason is your own personal safety. Informed that she might end up behind bars, Cox declares herself shocked. “They said it was a crime and I don’t want to go to jail for being stupid and then I got to get bonded out and I ain’t ever been to jail in my life so why do I want to do that being stupid,” she tells the media outlet.

Police say they’ve been notified of the incident but no report has been filed as of yet. Cox may get to car twerk another day.
