"Sich unmöglich verhalten" means "to behave in an unacceptable manner".

For example, someone went to a wedding party, got drunk, and yelled at people and told dirty jokes all the time. Then his wife might say on the following day:

Du hast dich gestern wieder unmöglich verhalten!

Everybody knows who behaved impossibly.

sich verhalten - to behave (your)self

someone please correct me if I'm wrong

Its somehow correct. But I'd rather translate it as "who behaved terribly" or "who behaved unbelievably".
