MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A suspected gang member wants to remove his tattoo that prosecutors allege was a threat aimed at a Minneapolis police officer.

But the attorney for Antonio Frasion Jenkins Jr. says the state grant that paid for removal of gang-related body art ran out.

Jenkins appeared in Hennepin County court Tuesday. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports defense lawyer Cindy McCollum told the judge they’re exploring ways to remove the homemade tattoo, which shows a person holding a pistol to the mouth of a pig wearing a Minneapolis police uniform.

The pig carries the badge number of an officer Jenkins told police he was angry with.

The 20-year-old St. Louis Park man was charged last November with making terroristic threats after a photo of the tattoo was posted on Facebook.
