John Cross is an man living in Idaho who apparently likes the word of Michael Jackson. Or, at the very least, he likes the moonwalk. He’s been charged with assault, and cops are saying he forced a man to perform the moonwalk at gunpoint.

It’s not clear where the assault took place, but it may have actually been in the home of Cross. Police were told the gun used was a semiautomatic, but Cross says it was simply a pellet gun.

Either way, why hold someone up at gunpoint and demand the moonwalk? Is it a crazy obsession? Is it a joke? How did the other man perform while under such pressure?

These are questions that may never be explained, but I do know this much – it may be one of the strangest at-gunpoint requests I’ve heard of…
