Odd news: Man accused of using gun to force another man to 'moonwalk'
Jesus--this brings new meaning to "Get down with your bad self!"
SANDPOINT, Idaho — An Idaho man has been charged with assault after authorities say he ordered another man to perform the “moonwalk” at gunpoint.
The Coeur d’Alene Press (http://bit.ly/IhdPmS ) reports 30-year-old John Ernest Cross was charged with the felony Tuesday in 1st District Court and appointed a public defender.
Police say they were called to Cross’ Clark Fork home on Monday after getting a report that he pointed a rifle at another man and demanded that the man perform the dance move popularized by Michael Jackson in the 1980s.
Investigators accuse Cross of using a semiautomatic rifle during the episode, but Cross claimed during his initial court appearance this week that the firearm was simply a pellet gun.
