News Story Of The Day: Moonwalk Or Die

I said DANCE, motherfucker!

From Idaho State Journal and Bean Counter Lori.

Idaho man accused of using gun to force 'moonwalk'

Associated Press  •  April 27, 2012

An Idaho man has been charged with assault after authorities say he ordered another man to perform the "moonwalk" at gunpoint.

The Bonner County Daily Bee 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 Monday to Cross' home in Clark Fork 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.


  1. I'm pretty sure that would be considered cruel and unusual punishment. It might even contravene the Geneva Conventions.

  2. This cracks me up. I grew up in Pocatello Id, home of the Idaho State Urinal, as we called it. Good times...

  3. Ha! Dance you varmint! Doesn't he know that you can't force dancing? It has to come from your soul. :)

  4. Also the "moonwalk" is very difficult. Especially under duress. Couldn't he have picked the "macarena" or something manageable?

  5. macfrannie, I live in Pocatello (OK well closer to American Falls). Nice to see a home girl on here!

    And regarding this story, I am guessing alcohol is involved.
