One Ohio drug dealer decided to be upfront about his business.
he annual Gathering of the Juggalos took place at the Legend Valley campground in Thornville, Ohio, from July 22 to 25. It’s a music festival headlined by Detroit horrorcore rap group Insane Clown Posse. Hardcore fans of the group have dubbed themselves “juggalos”, and frequently take to emulating the rappers by painting their faces.
Amidst the scientifically curious, Faygo soaked crowds, one man was apparently hoping to make some extra cash by selling cocaine to concert-goers. It’s a fairly common occurrence at large festivals, but most drug dealers at least try to hide their illicit business from the cops.
Not so for Daniel L. Drew, who held a handwritten sign reading “Cocaine”. After undercover police officers purchased twenty dollars worth of the drug from Drew, he was immediately arrested. He told a magistrate he “made a bad choice” at the concert.
Believe it or not, he wasn’t the only one arrested for blatantly advertising drugs that day. According to the Newark Advocate, 19-year-old John W. Reardon was charged with aggravated drug trafficking after police spotted him sitting next to a young topless woman with “Molly for sale” written across her chest. Police observed two transactions before arresting the pair.
This Gathering of the Juggalos was the sixteenth in the festival’s history. Despite the somewhat negative media coverage of the fan group, many who self-identify as “juggalos” say the group’s fandom is supportive, positive, and even family-oriented.
