Westerns aren’t quite as popular as they used to be. But if you’ve seen many at all, you’ve probably seen one where the bad guy in the black hat makes another cowpoke dance by firing lead into the ground at his feet. “Dance boy, DANCE!” That iconic scene’s even made its way into gangster movies. We don’t know if Ernest Cross is a fan of the Western cinematic genre, but he sure seems to be a Michael Jackson fan cuz he loves him some moonwalking. In fact, when he wants to see some, he wants it now . . .

And he doesn’t mind using a little persuasion to get the good times started. From foxnews.com:

Police say they were called to Cross’ Clark Fork (Idaho) 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.

Ernest claims the cops got it all wrong. He says it wasn’t a rifle, it was only a pellet gun. Cause that makes what he did much better. We’ll see how much dancing the other fellers in the county lockup make him do until he makes bail on that assault charge. And just in case he needs a little inspiration, we know the news that he’s our latest IGOTD will make him pirouette with joy.

  1. I know that a pellet gun is technically a gun, but when I see IGOTD posts I assume a firearm is involved and there’s some sort of negligent, not willful, act going on that may or may not be a crime.

    • In NJ you need your FID (firearms purchaser’s card) in order to purchase both a sling shot and a BB gun. I think plastic bead airsoft guns are different though, since they’re on open shelves at Dick’s. The funny thing is you will spend twice as much on the FFL transfer fee than you will on a top of the line slingshot lol.

      • Airsoft is controlled in the DPNJ as well. NJ just hates anything capable of imparting speed to a projectile.
