Man Ordered to Dance Moonwalk at Gunpoint, Police Say
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 Jacksons 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.
I think I remember this scene from one of the Back to the Future movies ...
Watch Back to the Future ... Moonwalk for Mad Dog
What would a 30 yr old know about moon walking? Did he have parachute pants and a members only jacket also?
Right up your alley
There was also a hilarious scence in ‘Blind Date’ where Bruce Willis forces a guy to moonwalk at gun point:
That was the one I remember. I just couldn’t remember the movie. That was hilarious.
Seems the concept originated in “Best Defense” (Eddie Murphy, 1984) and lazy screenwriters copied it from there.
At least it wasn’t like the scene in “Deliverance.”
I love it when a plan comes together.
Wasn’t that funny?
Bruce Willis, (after he made that guy start to moon walk)
‘I hate that sh*t!’ - and then he started to shoot at his feet. LOL
Funny movie. Shame it’s not on TV once in a while.
I’d like to see it again.
It doesn't really matter. You made him think it was a firearm so you go to jail.
So does this mean that the victim got hit by...
*puts on sunglasses*
...a smooth criminal?
Who would have thought a hologram would be poised to win the Republican presidential nomination, way back when?
Has anyone ever applied xomputerized aging to Max Headroom? Has anyone ever seen him and Mitt Romney on the same screen?
Didn’t think so.
