‘Moonwalk or else,’ says Idaho gunman

SANDPOINT, Idaho — An Idaho man has been charged with assault after authorities say he ordered another man to perform the “moonwalk” at gunpoint, reports the Associated Press. 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.
