I can't find anything in the 2018 Stylebook that says this should be avoided, but maybe someone here can find something.

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet," Emperor Nero said as fell deeper into his own insanity:

"Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur."

Is this structure adherent to AP style?
