Eastern Shore Man's Arm Amputated After Dispute Over Insane Clown Posse Tattoo

Two men on Maryland's Eastern Shore will remain in prison after authorities say they attacked another man this week forcing part of his arm to be amputated. Law enforcement believes the incident occurred because of a dispute over the rap group the Insane Clown Posse.

A judge has ordered the two men held without bond on charges of attacking a housemate and trying to forcibly remove a tattoo from his arm. Wicomico County sheriff Mike Lewis said the 31-year-old victim of Monday's attack had his right arm amputated below the elbow.

Investigators say 33-year-old Paul Hurst and 35-year-old Carey Lee Edwards beat the victim and then tried to carve and burn a tattoo from his arm.

Lewis says all three men are affiliated with the Juggalos, the cult fan base of the Insane Clown Posse. The FBI has described Juggalos as "ganglike." Sheriff Lewis says the suspects thought the victim disrespected ICP and didn't deserve to wear the tattoo.
