Juggalos are often in the headlines for the wrong reasons, and today’s news is no exception. Two Juggalos are now facing attempted murder charges in Maryland after allegedly trying to forcibly remove an Insane Clown Posse tattoo off their roommate’s arm – because they felt he hadn’t “earned the right” to wear it.
Authorities say the victim, 31-year old Zachary Swanson, was so badly injured that doctors were forced to amputate his right arm below the elbow. According to police, 33-year-old Paul Martin Hurst and 35-year-old Carey Lee Edwards savagely beat Swanson, and then tried to unsuccessfully carve the tattoo from his arm. When that didn’t work, the pair allegedly doused Swanson’s arm with flammable liquid and set him on fire.
Swanson was left on the floor for several hours before he was finally discovered and rushed to a hospital. He was then flown to a burns unit in Baltimore.
