As one does.

A Wisconsin horrorcore rapper named Bloody Ruckus was arrested yesterday for his involvement in an alleged blood-drinking ritual that ended in the severing of a woman's finger—ultimately provoking exactly what his name suggests.

On August 27 in Saumico, Wisconsin, the rapper, real name Preston Hyde, was with two other men and one woman when the alleged incident went down. According to WBAY, all of those involved were Juggalos and they were performing a "ritualistic memorial" for the one-year anniversary of a fellow Juggalo's death.

Apparently the group was talking about drinking blood that morning, when the woman, 27-year-old Shelby Nuens, volunteered her own.

Jon Schrap, one of the dudes there and a childhood friend of Hyde, then grabbed a machete— yes, this is why you always have a nearby machete—to take her blood.

The criminal complaint says: "Jon had taken a machete and made an approximate one inch laceration on her right side forearm. She was bleeding profusely... Jon filled up a shot glass with her blood and drank her blood."

Sounds like a certified rager, amirite?

But the gory morning didn't end there. The group then started talking about cutting off someone's finger, as one does, and Nuens again volunteered. In one fell swoop, Schrap chopped her pinky off right up to her palm.

"Jon then placed the finger in his freezer where he said he would cook it and eat it later," the complaint says. "The group then attempted to stop the bleeding by using a car cigarette lighter which failed. They then used a blowtorch."

Nuens later told police that these (failed) attempts to cauterize her hand were more painful than getting her finger severed.

If you're wondering if she ever thought to go to the hospital, she finally did later on that night, and only after her boyfriend's mom saw her hand and, as we imagine, probably freaked the fuck out.

There's no details yet on Hyde's arrest, however Schrap has already been charged with "mayhem" and "reckless injury," both of which, let's be honest, sound like solid Juggalo names.
