A man was arrested after police saw him dabbing during a music festival in Saudi Arabia.

Singer, TV host and actor Abdallah Al Shaharini was performing at a music festival in the city of Taif in Saudi Arabia.

A video footage of him dabbing during the festival circulated online. Al Shaharani was then reportedly arrested by authorities.

As BBC News reports, the popular dance move of dabbing is banned in the country as officials believe that it "glorifies a culture of narcotic abuse".

Al Shaharani has since apologized for his actions, writing on Twitter: “I apologize to our respected government and to my audience for unintentionally and spontaneously making the dance move at Taif festival. Please accept my apology.”

Recently, the Saudi Interior Ministry’s National Commission for Combating Drugs released government posters warning people "about the dangers of this [move] on the youth and society, and is warning against imitating it”.
