A celebration of Michael Jackson’s life turned chaotic after a Metro officer was forced to shoot a pit-bull that chased after him, according to Officer Weiskopf.

Metro was called to 2710 Palomino Lane to regulate anxious patrons trying to bypass property gates to go inside Michael Jackson’s Las Vegas home.

After Metro made contact with some patrons, a group of individuals left on foot down Shetland road, a street that intersects with the 2700 block of Palomino Lane.

The officer that made contact with the individuals noticed that one of the patrons might have a warrant and started to follow the group down Shetland Road.

As the officer pursued the group, a black pit bull in a nearby yard started running towards the officer.

A gate separated the dog from the officer but somehow the dog forced itself through the gate and started after the officer.

The officer tried to retreat but the dog continued to gain speed, which forced the officer to release fire, hitting the dog.

Owners of the dog rushed their pet to the veterinarian to receive care.

“He rocks in the tree-top all a day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and a-singin’ the song
All the little birds on J-Bird St.
Love to hear the robin goin’ tweet tweet tweet”

“Rockin’ robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Rockin’ robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Oh rockin’ robin well you really gonna rock tonight” read the rest of the lyrics to this hit song from 1958 on MamaRocks.com

Rockin’ Robin is a 1958 song by Bobby Day. The single was Day’s only hit single, becoming a No. 2 Billboard Hot 100 hit. The song was covered by The Hollies on their first album in 1964 and would be revived as a single again in 1972 by the teenaged Michael Jackson as his second single release on Motown. Jackson took his version to number two on the U.S. pop singles chart that year” read more on Wikipedia

Adding my input to the Twitter landslide, this must be the definitive song for Twitterers: Bobby Day’s 1958 hit “Rockin’ Robin.” The word “tweet” is used 24 times, that’s two dozen tweets.

If anyone can show me a song with more than two dozen “tweets,” I’ll give them a nice prize.

Bobby Day’s Rockin’ Robin on YouTube

“An important cog in Los Angeles’ doo wop community during the ’50s, Bobby Day wrote three often-covered early rock classics in 1957-1958. Day was part of the Hollywood Flames, one of the area’s top R&B vocal groups, and briefly part of Bob & Earl, later to hit without Day on “Harlem Shuffle.” Day formed his own group, the Satellites, in 1957, cutting the original “Little Bitty Pretty One” for Class Records. A nearly identical cover by Thurston Harris beat the original out, so Day countered with the driving “Rockin’ Robin” in 1958, an R&B chart-topper. Its flip, “Over and Over,” was a hit in its own right, although the Dave Clark Five’s 1965 revival is better remembered today. Day waxed a few more hits for Class in 1959, including “That’s All I Want” and a derivative “The Bluebird, the Buzzard & the Oriole,” flitting from label to label during the ’60s.” ~ Bill Dahl, All Music Guide [This info is from JohnB1948Two’s YouTube channel.]

The fine clockwork, drum work on Rockin’ Robin is by Earl Palmer.
“Earl Cyril Palmer (October 25, 1924 – September 19, 2008)[1] was an American drummer and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

“Palmer played on many recording sessions, including Little Richard’s first several albums and Tom Waits’ 1978 album Blue Valentine. According to one obituary, “his list of credits read like a Who’s Who of American popular music of the last 60 years” more from Wikipedia
