Insane Clown Posse Fans Amputate Pinky as Part of “Ritualistic Memorial” for Dead Juggalo
Juggalo fans continue to go out of their way to come across as crazy imbeciles.
The latest from this less-than-lovable band of boneheads: a Wisconsin Juggalo named Jonathan Schrap has been arrested for chopping off the pinky and gashing the arm of fellow ICP worshipper Shelby Neuens. And, oh yeah, Schrap also drank Neuens’ blood.
Here comes the punchline. Ready? Neuens was a willing participant in her own disfigurement! The whole thing was intended as a “ritualistic memorial” for a fellow Juggalo who died last year. Other participants in the ceremony, who did not have to lose an appendage, included some crapbag named Nick Laabs and an ICP-wannabe rapper known as “Bloody Ruckus” (his real name is Preston Hyde).
Once again, Schrap grabbed the machete. “Jon’s second strike with the machete took the pinky clean off,” says the criminal complaint. “All the way to the palm.”
“Jon then placed the finger in his freezer where he said he would cook it and eat it later,” the complaint continues. “The group then attempted to stop the bleeding by using a car cigarette lighter which failed. They then used a blowtorch.”
Neuns told officers that the blowtorch wounds hurt worse than her pinky being severed.
Later that night, Neuens went to her boyfriend’s house and showed him the injuries. His mother heard the story and made Neuens go to the emergency room. Staff at Saint Mary’s Hospital called police, believing she’d taken part in cult initiation.
Hyde apparently filmed the entire thing. True to his surname, he has since gone on the lamb. Given that he has a pair of devils’ horns tattooed on his forehead, though, I can’t imagine it will be easy for him to continue to evade police.
Meanwhile, Neuens is pissed that Schrap has been arrested, since, again, she was a volunteer.
Schrap is charged with mayhem and reckless injury. In the state of Wisconsin, mayhem is a class C felony which comes with up to forty years in prison and fines reaching $100,000, while reckless injury is a class F felony that comes with up to twelve-and-a-half years in prison and fines reaching $25,000. So, assuming the police have a copy of that video, he will probably not be able to attend The Gathering of the Juggalos for a few years.
