The Insane Clown Posse are no strangers to controversey, their most recent coming when one of their fans hit Method Man in the face with a beer bottle. That is, until last night. According to a statement issued by their publicist, their wrestling show was raided by police in Southgate, Michigan.
“Once the bell rang, the crowd was absorbed in this battle between good and evil, and a handful of minutes ticked by as the action unfolded in the ring,” the statement explained. “What happened next is something that is remarkable even within the wacky world of professional wrestling. In a coordinated effort, nearly a dozen police vehicles descended on the building, and law enforcement officials flooded the venue in everything from standard uniforms to body armor and ultimately attempted to enter the ring which drew a raucous chant of “FUCK THE POLICE” from the ninja’s in attendance. Perhaps the audience recognized that Detroit, a city known locally as “The Murder Mitten” and nationally as the murder capital of the country would have more pressing issues than stopping several hundred people from having an enjoyable night out and supporting the local economy while watching wrestling history be made?
With the show officially shut down and no options on the table to allow the show to proceed, Police began attempting to clear the room while KG made an announcement that everyone would have their money refunded for tickets purchased via mail or via refund at the venue, with more details to be announced.”
