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.
