    Joe Rogan Guest Arrested After Head Found in Freezer

    By Charlie Nash,


    The Joe Rogan Experience

    A criminal justice reform activist was arrested on Thursday, just one month after he appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience after a severed head was found in an apartment freezer.

    Sheldon Johnson – a 48-year-old youth counselor for the Queens Defenders who spent 25 years in prison for attempted murder and robbery – was introduced on the Joe Rogan Experience in February by his friend, Perlmutter Center for Legal Justice executive director Josh Dubin , as “a marvelous human being” who was wronged by “the system.”

    Johnson was also photographed shaking hands with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg .

    However, less than a year after his release from prison, Johnson was arrested in New York on Thursday after police found a severed head in an apartment freezer and a torso stashed in a bin.

    The victim, identified as 44-year-old Collin Small , spent time in the same prison as Johnson and “may have had a beef” with him, according to the New York Post .

    Small was reportedly heard by neighbors pleading for his life on Tuesday evening before several gunshots rang out.

    In security footage following the incident, Johnson could be seen carrying cleaning supplies and a blue bin to the apartment where Small’s remains were found, before leaving in a blonde wig.

    Rogan received criticism from viewers when the episode with Johnson aired, with critics accusing Rogan and Dubin of downplaying Johnson’s violent criminal history.
