The bumper sticker on the car 24-year-old Amanda Suhr is said to have been driving when she allegedly struck a pedestrian and then fled the scene read "SIC...4LIFE."

The sticker, and some attentive witnesses, made it easy for authorities to track down Suhr, who appears to be a Juggalo -- a fan of the group Insane Clown Posse. Photos and more details below.

In addition, there are numerous allusions to ICP, including this graphic....

The caption for this last shot reads: "Ahhhh shiiit it's about that time!!! 3 weeks until GOTJ ya biiiish."

For non-ICP loyalists, "GOTJ" is a reference to Gathering of the Juggalos, an annual get-together whose 2014 edition took place in Thornville, Ohio last month.

It's important to note that Juggalos feel they're victims of prejudice and discrimination, with people assuming they're violent due to the extreme nature of many ICP lyrics. Hence the creation of a website called Juggalos Fight Back, which aims to "educate the public on what we're REALLY about." Here's a post that serves as a de facto mission statement:

Let's face it, ninjas -- a lot of people just don't understand us Juggalos. Perhaps they never will fully grasp the special family ties that bond us together but does that give them the right to call us gang members or a menace to society? Of course not! But it's always easier to attack what you don't understand. So what we have to do is educate the public on what Juggalos are really about. And YOU can help spread this knowledge by simply printing out this pamphlet and giving it to folks who could use some Juggalo education. Do your parents, clergymen or employer sneer at you or eye you suspiciously because you're a Juggalo? Has a law enforcement official ever accused you of being in a gang simply because you're wearing a Hatchetman charm? Next time someone gives you the bone for being a Juggalo, simply hand them one of these pamphlets and tell them you'll be happy to answer any questions they might have about the Juggalo family. Education cures prejudice, Juggalos! Help spread the word!
This effort won't be boosted by Suhr's arrest, which took place at around 8:30 p.m. Saturday, August 16.

The crime scene, from CBS4 coverage.
After 8 p.m., a gold Chevrolet Impala was driving northbound on Federal Boulevard when it struck someone crossing at 14th Avenue. According to 7News, the pedestrian was in the crosswalk but moving against the traffic signal.

The female driver briefly stopped at the scene, then fled despite a flattened tire, the police report obtained by 7News states. However, several witnesses, who are said to have actually chased after the Impala as it drove away, were able to take photos of the car, which sported a license plate from South Dakota, Suhr's home state, and the "SIC...4LIFE" sticker. They also gave police a description of the driver that matched Suhr.

Within hours, police had traced the vehicle to Suhr's apartment and found the Impala. But Suhr wasn't around. She didn't turn up until the next day, after an anonymous 911 caller said officers should get into contact with "Amanda" at Westwood Park, located on South Yates Street. The caller told the dispatcher Amanda had been involved in Saturday's hit and run.

When an officer arrived, the affidavit continues, Suhr was at the scene. She denied having placed the call to 911 and said her car had been stolen -- a story that apparently didn't convince prosecutors. The Denver District Attorney's Office has now charged her with leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury, failure to report an accident, no operator's license and no proof of insurance.

Bond for Suhr was set at $50,000. She's slated to appear in Denver County Court later today to be advised of the charges against her. Here's a look at her booking photo.

I fail to see what Juggalo has to do with the hit and run. You might has well have said she has butter connections.

Juggalo comnections? WTF? They're not the Hells Angels or a street gang. Mostly normal people from what I met. SMH. She probably ate McDonalds before. Is Ronald McDonalds connection involved too?

All you people talking down about juggalos just look for other reasons to hate us but we're not all the same! I'm a juggalo with a squeaky clean record and I'm very well educated. Don't judge a whole group of people by what one dumb bitch did.

Well I'm not one to usually do this whole back and forth thing....but I am a juggalo, ,28 years old with an education,family,job and I just think it's ignorant to generalize others by the type of music they listen to or for any other reason. You don't know me or her or "all" juggalos so why be so ignorant and close minded to say "there all uneducated clowns" oh and fyi it would be "they're all..." *whoop whoop mcl to all the haters* It's all good though buddy you continue on in your tiny little world, your oppinions will not affect mine.

There are numerous pedophiles with the first name "Michael". And numerous others with the last name "Roberts". I'm guessing if you look up "Michael Roberts" on the sex offenders list, you will find the person who wrote this article, including his address. Might not have any correlation with the subject we are discussing, but you can't be to careful now, can you? :P

This is probably the 20th person hit by a car on Federal between Colfax and 10th in the past few months. They need to BAN pedestrians in that area.

There's good people and bad people everywhere in the world. Just like there's good black people and bad black people, and there's good white people and bad white people. Just like there's good cops and bad cops. To say that all juggalos are bad from this one person's actions is just plain wrong.

Westword. Seriously. Didn't you just have a huge backlash from your followers about writing about juggalo crap? This article appears to have taken a legitimate story and manipulated it as an excuse to talk about juggalos more. It's unprofessional and completely irrelevant. Unfollowed.

Ok its completely ridiculous that they focus on the fact that she is a juggalo. I am a juggalo have been for 15 years I am a well functioning productive member of society. Its sad that this one particular individual was the cause of something so terrible.. and my prayers are with the victims family but in no way should what happened be used as yet another way to discriminate against a group of people juggalos in this case! much undying love to my juggalo family! And my prayers and thoughts are with the victim!

Juggalos try to act all innocent and that everyone treats them like shit, yet here you have a Juggalo hurting a pedestrian in a hit-and-run and then she tries to lie about it and deny it. Get your trashy ass the fuck out of here and stay away from Colorado.

It's funny to me when a website profiles people it's not a big deal... Do I personally think juggalos are dumb, yes but a newspaper/hack publication calling someone a bad human being based off their affiliation is a show of how lazy their journalism is. It makes me think that Westword would condone this same type of story if it was ties to a blood or crip but if they did their research had no gang activity at all

The fact that she listens to Icp/ psychopathic records etc or is / is not a sweetheart....and calls herself a juggalo has nothing to do with what she did/didn't do... people are ignorant. All kinds of people make bad choices/ mistakes.... what the fuck ever.
