Suspected Juggalos Try to Cut Off Man's Tattoo, Then Set Him on Fire

Two men were arrested by police early Monday in Hebron, Md. for allegedly attacking their roommate during a heated argument. Paul Martin Hurst, 33, and Cary Lee Edwards, 35, apparently attempted to cut their roommate's tattoo off his arm—when they failed, they set him on fire. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office believes there to be a "strong possibility" that the three are Juggalos.

According to police, Zachary Swanson, 31, was taken to the hospital with severe burns. The Baltimore Sun reports that police found Swanson's tattoo to be "consistent" with the iconography associated with Insane Clown Posse fans, "which the FBI has classified as a gang."

Per WBOC, Hurst and Edwards have been charged by police with attempted first and second degree murder, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, and assault with a deadly weapon.
