The news may not get much crazier than this. An ax-wielding man, who was demanding to hear an Insane Clown Posse song was arrested Monday after an hours-long standoff in front of Kiss 108 studios in Medford, Massachusetts.

According to WBZ-TV, a little after 1:30 p.m. Monday, police responded to 911 calls about a man in a red car who was wielding weapons and complaining about his failed attempt to request My Axe by the Insane Clown Posse. 

“He got out of his car with a machete, stopped a girl who worked up on the second floor and said ‘I want you to play a song for me,'” Doreen Schaivone WBZ-TV, the CBS station in Boston.

The oddball in question was later taken into custody by SWAT teams and identified by police as 38-year-old Richard Newton. Newton surrendered to authorities and was taken to the hospital for medical (although mental would have been more effective) evaluation, Lt. Joseph Casey told the Boston Herald. 

Dylan Sprague, the vice president of programming at, which owns the radio station, told the Boston Herald, that Newton had never contacted the station about playing the song, but said employees heard him talking about it. “He definitely was talking about requesting a song,” Sprague said.

“He was obviously undergoing some sort of crisis,” Casey said.

    Anyone who thinks ICP plays ‘music’, in ANY stretch of their miniscule, myopic imagination, is certifiably batshirt freaking whackanoid. GARBAGE, in it’s dirtiest, shittiest possible form. To think ANYONE would risk jail and worse (mental hold comes immediately to mind) over that NOIZBILGE is beyond comprehension. If you’re sane……

      When the media has spent the last thirty years promoting the mediocre products of objectively inferior cultures (hiphop & Retards Attempting Poetry come to mind), this is what you get.

      Disco was short lived due to it’s inferiority – it took less than a decade to create sufficient numbers of properly stupid people to accept even more execrable audio drivel.

      It’s called the “Celebration of Mediocrity” for a reason.

      couldn’t agree more. Worse, their name tells you all you need to know.

    Great thing that he wasn’t black or brown he would have been shot.

    • David E

      How do you know that? The story doesn’t mention his race.

      • renee ciccioni

        Because he walked away with his life , while armed. I looked the article up, I don’t just believe news articles from one source I research.

        • Clementine

          Maybe you should read some more articles then because Caucasians get whacked by cops all the time, but that isn’t click bait or race baiting… sad to know you go for both.

          Whites get snuffed by piggies more often than blacks or browns.

    • VOV

      Or…….maybe he surrendered (like the article states) without a chimpout.

  • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

    That has been taken care of, I’m sure.

  • David E

    While this is definitely a weird deal, is it a crime to request a song in person at a radio station while carrying a machete, (or axe, the story is not clear)? The story doesn’t say he was behaving threateningly.

  • Jas

    I thought these guys would have over dosed by now. Just hearing that makes me want to shake up a botte of generic cola and spray it on people.

  • anonymous4u4me

    Sounds like he might be running for public office soon and win.

  • James Wood

    Why didn’t they just play the dang song?

  • Clementine

    Juggalos are not known for their intelligence… or for having teeth, or saying no to meth. 😉

    • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

      No teeth? No worries! lol

  • It is not Paranoia

    Well, why the hell didn’t they play the damn song??
