A loud and proud Insane Clown Posse lover somehow ended up chopping off a friend’s pinky with a machete during a memorial for a fallen fellow Juggalo, according to police.
Jonathan Schrap — a 24-year-old Wisconsinite with the tattoos to prove his Juggalo love — has been charged with mayhem and reckless injury for his “ritualistic memorial” gone wrong, a criminal complaint obtained by WBAY says.
According to the complaint, Schrap and several friends — including a local rapper who goes by “Bloody Ruckus” — held a memorial in Suamico Aug. 27 for a Juggalo friend who died last year.
As part of the ritual, one friend — 27-year-old Shelby Neuens — offered to let Schrap drink her blood. Schrap slashed her on the right forearm, leaving her “bleeding profusely” from a one-inch laceration.
The friends soon started pondering the idea of severing a finger; Neuens, again, volunteered herself, telling them to nix her pinky.
Schrap took two swipes at her with a machete. The second try “took the pinky clean off,” the complaint says.
“All the way to the palm.”
Schrap then put the pinky in his freezer and said “he would cook it and eat it later,” the complaint says.
The friends then tried to stop the bleeding — first with a car cigarette lighter, which didn’t work, and then with a blowtorch. Police said the blowtorch brought more harm to Neuens than the severing.

Neuens went to her boyfriend’s house later that night and showed him her injuries; she soon went to an emergency room, where staff thought she had participated in a cult initiation, the complaint says.
Neuens assured police she participated in everything voluntarily, and said she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She also said Bloody Ruckus had a video of the whole mess, which has not been released publicly.
When police arrived at the home to investigate the bloodbath, Bloody Ruckus ran away from the home, the complaint says. It is unclear if authorities have tracked him down. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately return requests for comment.
Schrap, of Green Bay, is due in court Sept. 21 for a preliminary hearing. Court records show he pleaded guilty in 2014 to misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The year before, he pleaded no contest to operating a motor vehicle with no insurance.
His Facebook page is filled with pictures showing him with Insane Clown Posse masks, T-shirts, tattoos and memorabilia.
One of his most recent photos, from July, is a cartoon stating: “F— OFF FOR A WEEK! I’m at The Gathering Of The Juggalos 2016” — referencing the annual mass gathering of Insane Clown Posse obsessives.
