Juggalo Loses Arm After Roommates Try To Burn Off His ICP Tattoo

Oh, Juggalos, your knowledge of the human body can only be matched by your curiosity of magnets.

(Is it just me or does the guy on the left look like the guy from Smash Mouth.)

Roommates and amateur surgeons Paul Hurst (left, 33) and Carey Edwards (right, 35) were arrested for attempted murder and assault on fellow roommate Zachary Swanson after he allegedly disgraced the Insane Clown Posse. Hurst and Edwards attempted to carve off the ICP tattoo on Swanson’s right arm, saying he no longer deserved it. After several attempts failed, they covered his arm with flammable liquid and set it on fire, or as it is more commonly referred to, a Juggalo handshake.

The incident started when Hurst and Edwards confronted Swanson over apparently mistreating his girlfriend, Carey Edwards’ sister. Defending a Juggaho’s honor, they sound like sweet fellas.

Swanson was rushed to the hospital where his arm had to be amputated below the elbow. As if being burned alive wasn't enough, the two suspects had also beaten the hell out of their buddy with a "stick-like" weapon. In the end, the victim received eleven broken ribs, brain bleeding, liver lacerations, and several fractures. Swanson’s Hootie and the Blowfish tattoo, however, remains untouched.

Any flowers or cases of Faygo can be sent to the Baltimore burns center.

The Juggalos have been battling the FBI and Justice Department over whether they constitute as a gang or not. I think it's safe to go ahead and make a judgement call on that one.
