MUNCIE — Don’t blame a couple of Muncie police officers if they are on the lookout for a pair of musicians dressed as “wicked clowns.”
A Marion man arrested early Friday after causing a disturbance at a southside Muncie home warned two officers he was a “Juggalo” — a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse, a Detroit-based hip hop duo.
Joshua Michael Fosnough, 34, also told the officers “his boys” — Insane Clown Posse — were going to kill them, an affidavit said.
Fosnough — preliminarily charged with intimidation, public intoxication, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct — was being held in the Delaware County jail under $7,500 bond.
He was arrested about 12:30 a.m. after police received a report of a disturbance in the 100 block of East Ninth Street. They reported finding a man — later identified as Fosnough — “being very loud (and) cursing,” according to an affidavit.
According to court records, Fosnough’s criminal history includes convictions for intimidation, domestic battery, residential entry, possession of cocaine and possession of a controlled substance.
