‘Juggalos’ Shirt Offends Bar Patron Who Uses Knife to Remove It

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — One man’s shirt upset another man at a local bar so much that he used a knife to remove the shirt, said police.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened shortly before midnight Aug. 4 at Brewster’s Pub on Beach Boulevard.

Investigators said the victim was wearing a “Gathering of the Juggalos 2009” shirt, referencing an annual music festival.

Another man in the bar saw the shirt and asked the man if he was at that festival.

When the man said he was not there, the suspect reportedly pulled a knife and told him, “You have no right to wear this,” before beginning to cut the back of the shirt.

The victim told police when the suspect moved around to his front and got the knife near his neck, he grabbed the suspect’s hands. But the suspect broke free, and ripped the shirt and a necklace from the victim, again telling him he didn’t have the right to wear it.

The victim then went outside while the suspect stayed inside. Witnesses at the scene agreed with the victim’s side of the story, and one of the band members found the suspect, 21-year-old Terrence Joseph Hoover, took his knife and forced him to leave, according to the police.

Hoover was gone by the time police arrived, but they had the knife and a description of his car, which helped them determine Hoover was the suspect.

According to St. Johns County public records, Hoover, a St. Augustine resident, has been jailed four times since turning 18, including an aggravated assault arrest in February of this year; he was released in March.

He was arrested in St. Johns County Monday, and transported to Jacksonville Thursday, where he was booked into the Duval County jail on an aggravated assault charge.
