Juggalos -- fans of the group Insane Clown Posse -- have long decried attempts to portray them as violent. But amid their ongoing efforts to establish a new reputation, self-described Juggalo Nicholas Damon is on the run, wanted for a slew of felonies, including assaulting a police officer. Photos and details below.
Most of the content on Damon's Facebook page is private. However, his "Work" item reads: "Being a Juggalo isn't to be 'cool.' Being a Juggalo is all about family."
In addition, the majority of Damon's photos show him wearing or showing off Juggalo gear. Here's one example....

At that time, a CCPD officer pulled Damon over for a traffic violation -- and he discovered that a misdemeanor warrant had been issued in Damon's name.
At that point, the original officer and a second cop called to assist attempted to put Damon in custody. But instead, Damon allegedly backed into the patrol car, resulting in some damage to the cruiser and minor injuries to the pair of law enforcers, before taking off, with the officers in pursuit.
Damon made it to the 8200 block of Interstate 76, seen in another Google Maps screen capture....
...before crashing his car and fleeing on foot. And he fled pretty damn well: The officers have been unable to locate him since then.
Now, the CCPD reveals, a new felony warrant has been issued for Damon. The charges listed include first-degree assault on a peace officer, felony menacing, resisting arrest, vehicular eluding and hit-and-run.
Anyone with information about Damon's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Commerce City Police Department tip line at 303-289-3626. Here's a look at a recent Damon booking photo.
