Man Ordered to Dance “Moonwalk” at Gunpoint, Police Say

Idaho man faces felony assault charge

Just remember always to think twice before ordering someone to dance the “moonwalk” at the barrel of a gun.

An Idaho man has been hit with a felony assault charge for allegedly forcing another man to perform Michael Jackson’s signature “moonwalk” while having a rifle pointed at him, the Bonner County Daily Bee reported.

Police accused John Ernest Cross, 30, of using an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle while issuing the bizarre order to mimic a dance the late King of Pop debuted back in 1983.

Cross said during an initial court appearance that there was no rifle involved, only a pellet gun, the Daily Bee reported.

His bail was set at $20,000 and he was reportedly ordered to steer clear of the moonwalking victim.
