Man with an ax arrested in Medford after demanding Kiss 108 play Insane Clown Posse


Ok, look, we’re not exactly sure what’s going on here, but some shit has just gone down in Medford — and it involves 24 police and SWAT vehicles, an ax, and a man who requested that Kiss 108 FM play some Insane Clown Posse.

NBC Boston reports, via Universal Hub, that police took a man into custody Monday (July 10) afternoon after a tense two-hour standoff inside the parking lot of the Kiss 108 studio in Medford. The man was arrested around 4 p.m., but not before going to the iHeart radio station earlier in the day and telling a secretary they needed to play “My Axe” by ICP.

The man brandished what has been described as an ax (no word if it was actually a Juggalo hatchet), and that’s when police were called in.

The man returned to his car, and after a standoff in which he rammed a police vehicle and tossed the ax at law enforcement officials, the man was arrested “after emerging with his hands up from a car that had been surrounded by police vehicles,” reports NBC, which adds that the suspect “was taken away on a stretcher.” He allegedly had “several knives inside the car and was also seen drinking beer” in the vehicle.

On Twitter, @theSmudgiestCat gave a detailed rundown of the standoff from a different part of the same building. Read his account and watch his Periscope below.
