Just when you think that the "Juggalo March On Washington" was the most bananas thing that the ICP family could do, we read a headline that a Juggalo in Boston was arrested after trying to get his local radio station to play more ICP songs.

The 38-year-old man and fan of the Insane Clown Possee ended up in a three-hour police standoff after he showed up at a radio station in Boston wielding an axe demanding that the station play the ICP song "My Axe."

According to CBS Boston, the standoff started with the man/Juggalo threatening the receptionist at the radio station with an axe. The report goes on to say that he went back to his car to drink a beer, huff something from a paper bag, and was then surrounded by police. After three hours he finally surrendered after being threatened with a taser and a bean bag gum.

You can watch a video of the standoff below.
